Protest Alleging Erroneously Granted Proposal Evaluation Bonus

B-188773: Jul 28, 1977

Additional Materials:


Office of Public Affairs

The protester asserted that the awardee was improperly credited with an evaluation factor (bonus) for its printer subsystem. This allegation was denied because the printer offered by the awardee complied with the agency's reasonable interpretation of the bonus requirement. The solicitation was ambiguous because it failed to provide necessary information to determine whether the equipment would meet the preferred higher speed. While prejudice to the protester was not apparent, the agency should insure that future solicitations explain more fully the applicability of evaluation criteria.
