A firm protested a Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) contract award for an integrated network management system, contending that DISA: (1) should have excluded the awardee, since one of its subcontractors had an organizational conflict of interest which gave it an unfair competitive advantage; and (2) failed to follow the solicitation's stated evaluation scheme. GAO held that the: (1) protester was not prejudiced by the awardee's proposed subcontractor, since it was not involved in preparation of the instant procurement; (2) proposed subcontractor's prior relationship with DISA did not create an organizational conflict of interest or unfair competitive advantage for the awardee; and (3) protester was not prejudiced by DISA failure to follow the solicitation's evaluation scheme regarding lesser-weighted evaluation factors, since appropriate application of the weighted factors would have benefited the awardee. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
