A firm protested a Navy contract award for systems engineering, contending that the Navy: (1) improperly utilized price auctioning techniques to benefit the awardee; (2) failed to conduct meaningful discussions; and (3) improperly evaluated its proposal. GAO held that the: (1) awardee's cost reduction reflected a change in its proposed approach; (2) Navy properly conducted meaningful discussions, and was not required to identify every single weakness in the protester's bid; and (3) Navy's evaluation of the protester's bid was reasonable and consistent with the specified evaluation criteria. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
