A protester contended that its proposal was technically superior and that irregularities contaminated the proposal evaluation procedure. The agency determined that the original evaluation of proposals by the evaluation panel was not consistent with evaluation criteria or with the solicitation specifications, and its decision to convene a new panel was proper. A rational basis was shown for the agency's evaluation of the protester's proposal. The proposal was denied as was a claim for proposal preparation costs.
