A firm protested an Army contract award for installation, maintenance, and monitoring of an intrusion detection system, contending that the: (1) awardee failed to furnish a copy of its license at bid opening; (2) awardee's bid was unbalanced; (3) awardee would not be able to successfully perform the contract requirements; and (4) awardee submitted commercial brochures which qualified its bid. GAO held that the: (1) awardee furnished a copy of its license prior to award as required; (2) awardee's mathematically unbalanced bid was responsive, since it was not materially unbalanced and represented the best value to the government; (3) awardee's ability to perform the contract was a matter of responsibility, which it would not consider absent a showing of fraud or bad faith; and (4) awardee's descriptive literature did not indicate that the awardee intended to qualify its bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
