A firm protested an Air Force contract award for systems engineering, systems management, program management, systems sustainment, and contract transition for the Air Force Weather Weapon System, contending that the Air Force improperly evaluated proposals and failed to hold meaningful discussions. GAO found that the Air Force (1) recognized the risks in each proposal and concluded that both translated into moderate risk, and (2) engaged in meaningful discussions with the protester where it pointed out significant weaknesses. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
