A1 Procurement JVD (A1), a joint venture of A1 Procurement LLC and Satellite Janitorial Company, Inc., of Miami, Florida, requests that our Office recommend the reimbursement of A1's costs of filing and pursuing a protest challenging the award of a contract to HamHed LLC, of New Albany, Indiana, by the Department of the Army under request for quotations (RFQ) No. W911SA-11-T-0059. A1 also requests that we recommend the reimbursement of its costs of filing and pursuing a subsequent protest, in which it argued that the Department of the Army did not timely implement its proposed corrective action.
We recommend that the agency reimburse A1's costs of filing and pursuing its protest challenging the evaluation of its proposal. We deny the protester's request that we recommend reimbursement of the costs of A1's protest that the agency unduly delayed implementing its promised corrective action.
