DME Corporation, of Orlando, Florida, protests the U.S. Marine Corps' award of a contract to Aeroflex Wichita, Inc., of Wichita, Kansas, pursuant to request for proposals (RFP) No. 67854-09-R-3002 to provide ground radio maintenance automatic test systems (GRMATS) for software-defined radios. DME protests that the agency failed to properly evaluate DME's and Aeroflex's proposals with regard to the solicitation's non-price evaluation factors. DME also protests that Aeroflex violated the procurement integrity provisions of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act, 41 U.S.C. 423 (2000), in connection with Aeroflex's hiring of a former DME employee.
We deny the protest with regard to the agency's evaluation of proposals; we dismiss the protest with regard to the alleged procurement integrity violation.
