The protester objected to the award of a contract to be negotiated, alleging that the agency was required to conduct negotiations with other qualified offerers. The existence of adequate competition was demonstrated, and performance under a prior similar solicitation provided the cost experience necessary to justify award on the basis of initial proposals. The nature and extent of cost analysis to be conducted was a matter of agency discretion, and there was no basis to object to the use of the cost evaluation formula adopted for and applied to the procurement since the formula provided a reasonable cost estimate.
