A firm protested a Marine Corps contract award for commercial off-the-shelf software, contending that: (1) the Marine Corps unreasonably evaluated the technical proposals; (2) the Corps performed an improper price realism evaluation; and (3) it was entitled to award, since it had the highest technical score and lowest price. GAO held that the Marine Corps: (1) reasonably evaluated the bid prices in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; (2) conducted a proper cost realism analysis; and (3) reasonably made award to the bidder that offered the best value to the government. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
