A firm protested a Navy contract award for warfare training targets, contending that the Navy: (1) should have awarded it the contract, since its bid was technically superior; (2) failed to define the solicitation's evaluation scheme; (3) failed to include first article testing costs in the solicitation; (4) improperly evaluated its management proposal; and (5) did not conduct a proper cost realism analysis of the bids. GAO held that the: (1) Navy properly awarded the contract to the bidder that represented the best value to the government; (2) protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest of alleged solicitation improprieties; (3) protester did not provide a sufficient basis to challenge the Navy's evaluation of its management proposal; and (4) Navy performed a proper cost realism analysis of the bidders' proposals. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
