A firm protested the Department of State's rejection of its bid for uniformed guard services, contending that State: (1) unreasonably evaluated its technical proposal and its proposed employees' management experience; (2) failed to hold meaningful discussions regarding its bid price; and (3) improperly excluded its bid from the competitive range. GAO held that State: (1) was not required to advise the protester that its bid price was too high; (2) reasonably evaluated the protester's technical proposal in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; (3) did not use an undisclosed evaluation criterion; and (4) properly excluded the protester's bid from the competitive range. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
