Two firms protested a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) contract award for support services, contending that NASA improperly: (1) evaluated their proposals; and (2) adjusted one protester's proposed costs upward. GAO held that NASA: (1) complied with the stated solicitation criteria in evaluating the proposals; and (2) had a reasonable basis to adjust the protester's proposed costs upward. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
