A firm protested a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) contract award for engineering support services, contending that: (1) GAO improperly denied it access to the bidders' proprietary data; (2) NASA did not obtain full and open competition, since it limited the competitive range to a single bidder; and (3) NASA failed to hold meaningful discussions with it. GAO held that: (1) it reasonably denied the protester access to the protective order, since there was significant risk that proprietary data would be inadvertently disclosed; (2) NASA reasonably limited the competitive range to a single bid, since the protester's bid was technically inferior; and (3) NASA was not obligated to conduct discussions with the protester, since it reasonably eliminated the protester's bid from the competitive range. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
