A firm protested a Department of State contract award for technical support services, contending that: (1) State misevaluated the proposals and improperly engaged in discussions with the awardee after the submission of best and final offers; and (2) the awardee engaged in an improper bait and switch of personnel. GAO held that: (1) State properly evaluated the proposals; (2) State did conduct improper discussions, however, the record showed that they did not prejudice the protester; and (3) there is no basis for concluding that the awardee knowingly or negligently misrepresented its intent to furnish the employees specified in its proposal. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
