A firm and the Navy requested reconsideration of a sustained protest of a Navy contract award for engineering, installation, and support services. GAO had held that the Navy unreasonably: (1) failed to consider the awardee's unpriced direct costs in its bid evaluation; and (2) selected the awardee based on its questionable bid price. In its request for reconsideration, the awardee contended that: (1) its bid price was not ambiguous; (2) the protester was not prejudiced by the Navy's source selection; and (3) the proposed corrective action was not limited to the basis of protest. In its request for reconsideration, the Navy contended that: (1) it reasonably evaluated the awardee's bid price and determined that the awardee's other direct costs were included in certain line item costs; and (2) the awardee's proposed labor costs were reasonable. GAO held that the awardee and the Navy failed to provide any evidence that warranted modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the requests for reconsideration were denied.

  • Interoperability Clearinghouse
    We dismiss the protest because the protester, a not-for-profit entity, is not an interested party to challenge this sole-source award to an Alaska Native Corporation under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) program.
