[Protest of Navy Contract Award for Propulsion System Management and Engineering Services]
B-230261: Jun 20, 1988
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Navy contract award for propulsion system management and engineering services, contending that the: (1) Navy should have used a government estimate to evaluate offerers' personnel; (2) solicitation was defective, since it did not specify any tasks or deliverables; and (3) Navy improperly failed to hold discussions. GAO held that the: (1) Navy reasonably used an evaluation worksheet to evaluate personnel, since the worksheet contained information relating to the evaluation scheme; (2) protester untimely filed its protest against alleged solicitation defects; and (3) Navy properly awarded the contract without discussions, since the solicitation advised offerers of that possibility and the awardee's costs were reasonable and low. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
