A firm protested an Air Force contract award for a joint primary aircraft training system, contending that the Air Force improperly evaluated technical proposals and life-cycle costs. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) evaluated the technical proposals in accordance with the solicitation's criteria; (2) downgraded the protester's technical proposal because it would entail considerable performance risk; (3) reasonably evaluated life-cycle costs; and (4) made an appropriate cost-technical tradeoff decision in selecting the awardee's higher-priced, technically superior bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
