The Boeing Company, of St. Louis, Missouri, protests the award of a contract to Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation Aerospace Systems, of Redondo Beach, California, by the Department of the Air Force, Rapid Capabilities Office, under request for proposals (RFP) [redacted], for the Long Range Strike Bomber (LRS-B) engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) and low rate initial production (LRIP) contract. Boeing alleges that the Air Force failed to consider risks inherent in Northrop's approach that should have rendered Northrop's proposal unacceptable or significantly increased Northrop's evaluated cost. Boeing also alleges that the Air Force unreasonably rejected cost data supporting Boeing's proposed costs and employed an arbitrary and unreasonable cost realism methodology.

We deny the protest.
