A firm protested the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) exclusion of its proposal from the competitive range for a job program study, contending that: (1) HHS improperly evaluated its proposal; (2) the solicitation was misleading regarding the type of study required; (3) HHS should have allowed it to revise its proposal; and (4) HHS failed to invite it to a presolicitation conference. GAO held that: (1) HHS properly and reasonably determined that the protester's proposal was technically unacceptable; (2) the protester misinterpreted the solicitation specifications; and (3) the protester untimely protested its alleged exclusion from the conference. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
