A firm protested the Army's exclusion of its bid from the competitive range under a solicitation for the maintenance of various government facilities, contending that the Army: (1) should have held discussions; (2) improperly rejected its bid as deficient, since the solicitation cautioned against elaborate proposals; and (3) should have considered its past performance under similar contracts. GAO held that the Army reasonably excluded the protester from competition since: (1) the protester's bid was materially deficient; (2) the protester made no effort to adequately address the solicitation requirements; (3) the protester did not include its experience in its proposal; and (4) the caution against elaborate proposals did not eliminate the need for information that the solicitation required. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
