- Full Report:
A firm protested a Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) contract award for services at several CNCS offices to support efforts to provide awareness and access to the CNCS programs and departments, contending that CNCS (1) failed to conduct meaningful discussions, (2) erred in evaluating the protesters technical proposal, and failed to perform a proper cost realism analysis. GAO held that: (1) the evaluation was reasonable and consistent with the evaluation factors, and (2) written discussions prior to the site visit reasonably apprised the protester of the areas of its proposal that were considered deficient, exchanges conducted during the site visit centered on the facilities, and CNCS subsequently requested and evaluated final proposal revisions which incorporated discussion responses. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
