B-259255.6: May 8, 1995
- Full Report:
A firm protested a proposed Army contract award for a missile demonstration program, contending that the Army: (1) conducted flawed technical and cost evaluations; and (2) failed to conduct meaningful discussions with it regarding its technical proposal. GAO held that: (1) the Army reasonably evaluated the protester's bid in accordance with the stated evaluation criteria; (2) there was no evidence that the Army's cost evaluation was flawed; (3) the Army reasonably determined that the awardee's engineering approach was sufficient for continued design development; and (4) the Army conducted meaningful discussions and reasonably led the protester into areas of concern regarding its missile design and performance. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
