B-250136.5: Mar 22, 1994
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Army contract award for oxygen distribution systems, contending that the Army: (1) was biased against it; (2) improperly evaluated its bid and failed to adequately consider its experience; (3) afforded the awardee a competitive advantage, since it was the incumbent contractor; and (4) failed to sufficiently advise it of the solicitation's potential risks. GAO held that the: (1) protester did not provide sufficient evidence to support its allegation of bias; (2) Army properly evaluated the protester's bid; (3) awardee did not gain an unfair competitive advantage as a result of its incumbency; and (4) Army properly advised the protester of the solicitation's potential risks. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
