An individual protested a Forest Service contract award for trail surveys, contending that the Forest Service improperly: (1) evaluated his quotation; and (2) made award to a less qualified bidder. GAO held that the Forest Service properly evaluated the protester's offer as technically unacceptable, since he failed to include required information to evaluate his experience, knowledge, and ability to perform the contract. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
