Two firms protested the Air Force's cancellation of solicitation for maintenance services, contending that the Air Force: (1) improperly conducted the competition; and (2) misevaluated their proposals. GAO held that the Air Force improperly cancelled the solicitation, since 14 of the agency evaluators held positions under the A-76 study and thus were subject to being contracted out, creating a conflict of interest that could not be mitigated. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that the Air Force: (1) rescind the cancellation of the solicitation, constitute a new technical evaluation team, the composition of which is consistent with this decision, and reevaluate the step-one technical proposals; and (2) reimburse the protesters for their protest costs.
