A firm protested the Defense Fuel Supply Center's (DFSC) evaluation of its bid for naval distillate fuel, contending that DFSC failed to use the lowest, best available transportation rate in evaluating its proposal. GAO held that there was no evidence that DFSC reliance on a single quote for transportation services did not represent the lowest, best available rate. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
