[Protest of Army Decision To Perform ADP Services]
B-228014.2: Jan 26, 1988
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Army decision to perform automated data processing services in-house, contending that the: (1) Army's cost estimate was too low, since its proposed staffing was inadequate to perform the required work; and (2) evaluation board would have rejected any bid based on the Army's proposed staffing as unacceptable. GAO held that: (1) since the evaluation board did not evaluate the Army's estimate, the board's judgement on its merits was not relevant; and (2) the protester failed to demonstrate that the Army acted fraudulently or in bad faith in making its staffing determinations. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed in part and denied in part.
