A firm protested a Department of Labor (DOL) contract award to another firm for health support services, contending that: (1) DOL failure to notify it in advance of the award prevented it from timely filing a size-status protest; (2) the awardee's bid did not provide certain required information concerning subcontractors and consultants; and (3) DOL failed to inform it that its proposed level of effort significantly exceeded the government's estimate. GAO held that: (1) DOL properly awarded the contract 10 days after the size-status protest; (2) the awardee submitted the required information concerning subcontractors and consultants with its bid; and (3) DOL properly informed the protester during discussions that its costs were high. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
