[Protest of FWS Rejection of Bid for Chemical Analysis Services]
B-240144: Oct 26, 1990
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) rejection of its bid for chemical analysis services, contending that FWS: (1) incorrectly evaluated its technical proposal; and (2) improperly excluded its bid from the competitive range. GAO held that FWS: (1) reasonably determined that the protester's proposal was technically unacceptable; (2) reasonably excluded the technically unacceptable bid from the competitive range without consideration of price; and (3) was not required to conduct discussions with a technically unacceptable offeror. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
