[Protest of DOE Rejection of Bid for System Engineering Designs]
B-258708: Feb 13, 1995
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Department of Energy's (DOE) rejection of its bid for systems engineering design, contending that DOE improperly eliminated its bid from the competitive range. GAO held that: (1) DOE reasonably evaluated the protester's bid in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; (2) the protester's bid would require major revision to be considered for award; (3) the protester failed to demonstrate a comprehensive engineering approach; and (4) DOE reasonably determined that the protester's bid was technically deficient. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
