B-406625: Jul 17, 2012
EMR, Inc., of Lawrence, Kansas, protests the Department of the Air Forces failure to award it a contract under request for proposals (RFP) No. FA6643-11-R-0003, for the Command-wide O&M Program Execution Contract (COMPEC II) program, for construction and engineering services at Air Force activities. EMR asserts that the agencys evaluation of its labor rates was inconsistent with the RFPs statement that the evaluation of price would be based upon total price. EMR also argues that the agency improperly coerced it during discussions into raising its price.
We deny the protest.
