A firm protested an Air Force contract award to another firm for financial counseling services, contending that: (1) the Air Force erroneously evaluated proposals, because its proposal was technically superior to the awardee's at a lower price; (2) the solicitation did not state the Air Force's actual needs; and (3) the awardee, as the incumbent contractor, had an unfair competitive advantage. GAO held that: (1) the Air Force reasonably evaluated proposals and determined that the awardee's was superior; (2) price was not the sole basis for award; and (3) the protester untimely filed the portions of the protest alleging solicitation defects and unfair competition. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
