Three firms protested an Army contract award for hazardous waste removal, contending that the Army: (1) improperly awarded the contract to a firm whose parent company conducted previous work at the waste site; (2) failed to properly inform offerers of the relative importance of the evaluation factors; (3) failed to properly apply the evaluation factors; (4) failed to properly and specifically request best and final offers (BAFO); and (5) failed to conduct meaningful discussions with each of the protesters. GAO held that the Army: (1) properly determined that the parent company's previous work did not give the awardee a competitive advantage; (2) properly listed and applied the evaluation criteria; (3) provided all offerers a chance to revise their proposals and submit BAFO; and (4) informed the protesters of the deficiencies in their bids. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
