A firm protested a Department of the Air Force contract award for consolidated facilities maintenance services, contending that the Air Force misevaluted the awardee's and protester's proposals, and failed to conduct adequate discussions with the protester. GAO held that: (1) solicitation does not provide for the evaluation of proposals based on financial stability, and (2) all significant deficiencies were brought to the protester's attention and it was afforded an opportunity to address these concerns. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
