B-280521,B-280521.5: Oct 14, 1998
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Air Force contract award for technical services for launch and non-launch operations, contending that the Air Force: (1) improperly and inconsistently downgraded its initial proposal; and (2) misled it during discussions. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) properly questioned the protester during discussions about apparent shortcomings in its approach to meeting agency requirements; and (2) reasonably downgraded the protester's bid, since it did not comply with the solicitation's requirements. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
