A firm protested the Navy's rejection of its bid for computer programming services, contending that: (1) the Navy improperly evaluated its proposal; (2) the Navy was biased against the firm; and (3) the awardee's proposed system did not comply with the solicitation's requirements. GAO held that: (1) the Navy's decision not to fund protester's proposal was proper, since the bid evaluation was consistent with the terms of the solicitation; and (2) there was no showing that the Navy conducted the procurement in bad faith or violated regulations. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
