[Protest of Navy Contract Award for Internal Telephone System]
B-270138: Jan 17, 1996
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Navy contract award for internal telephone systems, contending that the Navy should have determined that the awardee was nonresponsible, since the technical proposal it submitted was inadequate. GAO held that: (1) it would not review an affirmative responsibility determination, unless the protester could provide evidence of fraud or bad faith; and (2) the award was proper, since there was urgent need for the requirement and the Navy waived the solicitation requirement for detailed technical proposals. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
