A firm protested a Department of Justice (DOJ) contract award for a security intrusion detection and access control system, contending that DOJ: (1) failed to apply the evaluation criteria set forth in the solicitation; and (2) improperly evaluated those portions of the awardee's proposal relating to experience. GAO held that DOJ: (1) failed to evaluate a feature that the solicitation indicated would be evaluated; and (2) should amend the solicitation, reevaluate proposals, and reimburse the protester for its protest costs. Accordingly, the protest was sustained.
