[Protest of AID Contract Award for Policy Reform Project]
B-248603.2: Oct 30, 1992
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Agency for International Development (AID) contract award for foreign project assistance services, contending that AID: (1) conducted an unreasonable technical evaluation based on undisclosed evaluation criteria; (2) unreasonably evaluated employees' capabilities; and (3) failed to conduct meaningful discussions regarding its bid weaknesses. GAO held that AID: (1) reasonably excluded the protester's technical proposal; (2) properly considered whether the protester's employee would hinder its mission; and (3) lack of meaningful discussions did not prejudice the protester. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
