A firm protested the Navy's rejection of its low bid and subsequent contract award for a load bank, contending that the Navy improperly excluded its technically acceptable bid from the competitive range, since it was significantly lower than the Navy's estimate. GAO held that the Navy: (1) unreasonably excluded the protester's bid from the competitive range; and (2) should have discussed with the protester the discrepancy between its price and the government's estimate. Accordingly, the protest was sustained and GAO recommended that the Navy: (1) include the protester's bid in the competitive range and solicit new best and final offers; and (2) reimburse the protester for its protest costs.
