A firm protested an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) contract award for environmental service assistance team (ESAT) support services, contending that EPA improperly made award to an unqualified bidder. GAO held that EPA properly determined that the protester's higher-rated proposal was not worth the additional cost. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
