[Protest of Army Contract Award for LAN Computer Services]
B-257375.2: Nov 14, 1994
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Army contract award for secure local area network computer services, contending that the Army: (1) failed to follow the evaluation criteria; (2) failed to advise it of its bid deficiencies; and (3) unreasonably evaluated the bids and improperly consolidated the awardee's technical scores. GAO held that: (1) the protester abandoned its contentions regarding the Army's failure to advise it of its bid deficiencies and to follow the price evaluation criteria; (2) the Army reasonably determined that the protester's proposed personnel did not fully comply with the solicitation's personnel requirements; (3) there was no evidence that the Army considered the protester's ability to perform services at other than the specified sites in its technical evaluation; and (4) the protester was not prejudiced by the Army's alleged consolidation of the awardee's technical scores, since the awardee's bid was technically superior. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
