A firm protested a Navy contract award for family housing maintenance, contending that the Navy: (1) improperly used unstated evaluation criteria; (2) improperly gave the awardee's proposal a higher score in several areas; and (3) failed to conduct meaningful discussions with it. GAO held that: (1) the solicitation gave adequate notice that the Navy would consider past experience in addition to past performance; (2) the Navy reasonably rated the awardee's bid as superior in several areas; (3) there was no reason for the Navy to award the protester a higher score in the area of financial capability; and (4) the Navy conducted adequate discussions. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
