A firm protested an Army contract award for construction claims management services, contending that the Army improperly: (1) evaluated bids; and (2) selected a higher bidder. GAO held that the: (1) protester timely filed its protest regarding cost evaluation after receiving information it requested under the Freedom of Information Act; (2) protester untimely filed its protest regarding technical proposal evaluation more than 10 working days after it became aware of the basis for protest; (3) Army reasonably evaluated sample task cost instead of total contract cost, since the sample task provided a common basis for cost evaluation; and (4) Army reasonably determined that the awardee's technically superior proposal was worth its higher bid. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
