[Protest of Navy Rejection of Bid for Plastic Waste Processing System]
B-239906: Aug 17, 1990
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Navy's exclusion of its bid from the competitive range for a plastic waste processing system, contending that the Navy: (1) failed to conduct meaningful discussions; and (2) improperly determined that its proposal was outside of the competitive range. GAO held that the Navy was not required to conduct negotiations with the protester, since it reasonably determined that the protester's proposal was technically unacceptable and had significant informational deficiencies. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
