A firm protested a Navy contract award for cockpit video recording systems, contending that the: (1) awardee's product did not satisfy the solicitation's nondevelopmental item requirement; (2) Navy improperly evaluated the awardee's bid price and technical proposal; and (3) Navy improperly determined that the awardee's bid represented the best value. GAO held that the Navy: (1) reasonably determined that the proposed modifications to the awardee's product were acceptable; (2) properly rated the awardee's bid technically acceptable, since there was no merit to the protester's challenge of the awardee's technical approach; and (3) properly evaluated the awardee's bid price based on the best available information; and (4) made an appropriate price-technical tradeoff in selecting the awardee's low priced bid, despite its higher risk to the government. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
