A firm protested an Office of Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (OCHAMPUS) contract award for health care and associated administrative services, contending that: (1) the awardee's employment of former government employees and access to proprietary information gave it an unfair competitive advantage; (2) the awardee's bid failed to comply with mandatory solicitation requirements; and (3) OCHAMPUS improperly evaluated its technical proposal. GAO held that: (1) OCHAMPUS reasonably determined that the awardee's employment of former government employees did not constitute an unfair competitive advantage; (2) the increases in the awardee's score was not attributable to any improper information disclosure; (3) there was no evidence that the awardee's bid did not meet the solicitation's requirements; and (4) OCHAMPUS properly evaluated the awardee's technical proposal. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
