A firm protested a Navy contract award for gunnery training devices, contending that the Navy: (1) failed to comply with the solicitation's evaluation scheme and conduct a valid cost/technical tradeoff and price realism analysis; (2) failed to hold meaningful discussions regarding cost, scheduling, and technical merit; and (3) unreasonably evaluated the awardee's technical proposal. GAO held that: (1) Navy reasonably denied the awardee's counsel access to protected information during the protest, since it represented subsidiary companies in other protests; (2) Navy reasonably awarded the contract to the higher-priced technically superior bidder after it conducted a reasonable price realism and cost/technical tradeoff analysis; (3) Navy conducted adequate discussions and was under no obligation to inform the protester of inadequacies in its bid; and (4) protester failed to show any evidence that the Navy's evaluation was inconsistent with the evaluation criteria. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
