Two firms protested a Department of State contract award for guard services, contending that State unreasonably evaluated the bidder's past performance and experience. GAO held that State reasonably: (1) evaluated the bids in accordance with the stated evaluation criteria; and (2) awarded the contract to the awardee, since its bid represented the best value to the government. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
