[Protest of Navy Contract Award for Computer Hardware Maintenance and Software Support Services]
B-259934: Apr 19, 1995
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Navy contract award for computer hardware maintenance and software support services, contending that the Navy unreasonably rejected its bid as technically unacceptable. GAO held that the Navy: (1) reasonably determined that the protester's bid was technically unacceptable, since it contained numerous deficiencies; (2) was not required to refer its responsibility determination to the Small Business Administration, since its technical evaluation did not involve responsibility; and (3) properly rejected the protester's bid as technically unacceptable. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
