[Protest of Library of Congress Contract Award for Writing Course]
B-271713: Jul 19, 1996
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Library of Congress contract award for a writing course, contending that the Library misevaluated its bid under the first evaluation factor. GAO held that the Library: (1) properly evaluated the protester's high-priced bid and the awardee's low-priced bid as technically equal; and (2) reasonably determined that the awardee had more relevant teaching and publication experience and made award based on the awardee's low bid price. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
