A firm protested a General Services Administration (GSA) lease award, contending that: (1) GSA improperly determined that the awardee's site was within the specified geographical area; (2) GSA improperly evaluated its technical proposal; (3) the awardee failed to include electricity or air conditioning costs in the rental rate; and (4) GSA failed to give its site a historical-building preference. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed its protest regarding the inclusion of the awardee's site within the specified area; (2) GSA reasonably evaluated such issues as the quality of office space, layout, accessibility to public transportation and eating facilities, and delivery; (3) the solicitation did not require that the rental rate include utility costs; and (4) GSA properly did not apply the historical-building preference, since it reasonably concluded that the awardee's offer was superior. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed in part and denied in part.
