A firm protested an Army contract award for food services, contending that: (1) the award was inconsistent with the solicitation specifications; and (2) discussions were inadequate. GAO held that the Army: (1) properly based its award decision on the solicitation's evaluation criteria; (2) awarded the contract to the bidder that was the most advantageous to the government, not the low, technically acceptable bidder; and (3) adequately advised the protester that its bid deficiencies required correction. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
