A firm protested an Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) contract award for special analyses, contending that: (1) UMTA improperly downgraded its bid for weaknesses which were not directly related to the evaluation criteria; (2) UMTA did not hold adequate discussions; and (3) the alleged weaknesses resulted from the agency's faulty evaluation of its bid. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed after award its protest against the agency's bid evaluation; (2) UMTA reasonably evaluated the protester's bid consistently with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; and (3) UMTA properly advised the protester of its bid's weaknesses. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed in part and denied in part.
