A firm protested an Air Force contract award for a weapons systems information center, contending that: (1) the Air Force improperly evaluated the bids by assessing its bid a higher risk, while not downgrading the awardee's bid for similar deficiencies; (2) the Air Force failed to hold meaningful discussions with it; (3) it fully complied with user access requirements; and (4) the Air Force arbitrarily determined that its cost risk was high. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) reasonably determined that the protester's proposal to increase labor hours to offset unqualified personnel was deficient; (2) held meaningful discussions with the protester; (3) was reasonably concerned about problems posed by the protester's equipment proposal; (4) reasonably determined that the protester's management plan was too complex and difficult to execute; and (5) reasonably assigned the protester's bid a high cost risk score. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
