[Protest of Air Force Contract Award for Ground Maintenance Services]
B-282247: Mar 31, 1999
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Air Force contract award for ground maintenance services, contending that the Air Force: (1) improperly relied on the Contractor Performance Assessment Report (CPAR) in evaluating its past performance; (2) violated the solicitation requirements; and (3) should have amended the solicitation to incorporate answers to various questions that it had asked. GAO held that the: (1) Air Force's reliance on the CPAR was the subject of pending litigation in a federal court; (2) Air Force reasonably evaluated the protester's bid in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; and (3) protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after the Air Force denied its agency-level protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
