A firm protested a Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) contract award for waste disposal services, contending that NAVFAC: (1) improperly based its award on unstated evaluation criteria; (2) improperly evaluated the technical proposals; and (3) made an improper cost/technical tradeoff in selecting the awardee's high bid. GAO held that NAVFAC: (1) reasonably considered the proximity of the awardee's proposed facilities in its bid evaluation; (2) properly evaluated the bidders' experience and technical proposals in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; and (3) made a proper cost/technical tradeoff in selecting the awardee's technically superior bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
