Two firms protested the Army's rejection of their bids for facilities maintenance and repair, contending that the Army improperly evaluated their bids and excluded them from the competitive range without conducting discussions. GAO held that the Army reasonably rejected the bids, since the: (1) first protester's bid would require major revisions to become technically acceptable; and (2) second protester failed to include the required resumes and lease agreements, failed to propose sufficient staffing, and lacked project experience. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
