A firm protested a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) contract award for a pediatric vaccine, contending that: (1) the awardee's product did not meet the solicitation's material requirements; and (2) CDC improperly relaxed the requirements in order to make award to the awardee. GAO held that: (1) the awardee was not required to have the proper license at bid opening; (2) CDC properly determined that the awardee met the licensing requirement at the time of award and that the awardee's product complied with the solicitation requirements; (3) CDC did not improperly relax the solicitation's dosage requirements for the awardee; (4) CDC was not required to disclose the awardee's participation in the procurement; and (5) there was no evidence that CDC engaged in improper negotiations with the awardee. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
