B-408176.13: Feb 14, 2014
Carney, Inc. of Alexandria, Virginia, requests that our Office recommend that it be reimbursed the reasonable costs of filing and pursuing its protest of the elimination of its proposal from further consideration by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) under request for proposals (RFP) No. OPM19-12-R-0003 for training and management assistance. We dismissed the protest after the agency advised our Office that it would take corrective action by including Carney's proposal in the competitive range. Carney argues that it is entitled to reimbursement of its protest costs because its protest was clearly meritorious and that the agency's corrective action was unduly delayed.
We grant Carney's request in part and deny it in part.
