Valor Construction Management, LLC, of Pahokee, Florida, protests the award of a contract to the Ale Group, Inc., of Naples, Florida, under request for proposals (RFP) No. VA-248-11-RP-0098, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for the correction of life safety deficiencies at the VA's Miami Medical Center. Valor argues that the Ale Group should have been excluded from the competition because one of its proposed subcontractors, Strollo Architects, Inc., has an organizational conflict of interest (OCI) stemming from its prior performance on a related VA contract. The protester also challenges the agency's evaluation of the Ale Group's proposal under the technical approach factor.
We deny the protest.
