A firm protested an Air Force contract award for electronic threats and targets operation and maintenance, contending that the Air Force failed to hold meaningful discussions with it. GAO held that the: (1) Air Force failed to hold meaningful discussions with the protester about its proposed staffing level; (2) protester could have resolved the Air Force's concerns by increasing its staffing level; and (3) protester was not prejudiced by the Air Force's failure to hold meaningful discussions, since these discussions would not have improved the protester's current and past performance rating. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
