[Protest of HCFA Rejection of Proposal as Technically Unacceptable]
B-236960: Jan 17, 1990
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) solicitation for time and motion engineering studies, contending that: (1) HCFA applied an undisclosed evaluation criterion in determining that its bid was technically unacceptable; (2) HCFA misapplied the stated evaluation criteria; and (3) it should have received the award as the low bidder. GAO held that HCFA properly: (1) applied only the stated evaluation criteria; (2) determined that the protester's bid was technically unacceptable; and (3) rejected the protester's bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
