[Protest of DLA Contract Award for Maintenance]
B-252393.2: Dec 8, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract award for computer equipment maintenance services, contending that DLA: (1) should have awarded it the contract as the low bidder; and (2) failed to consider its past technical experience. GAO held that DLA: (1) reasonably determined that the awardee's bid was the most advantageous to the government; (2) was not required to make award to the low bidder; and (3) reasonably evaluated the bidders' prior experience and made award to the technically superior bidder. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
