A firm protested an Army contract award for battle simulation support services, contending that the Army's evaluation of the cost and technical proposals and award decision were improper. GAO held that the Army reasonably: (1) evaluated the bidders' cost and technical proposals in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; (2) made an upward adjustment to the awardee's proposed costs due to increased overseas logistics support costs; (3) determined not to downgrade the awardee's technical proposal due to the cost adjustments, since the cost adjustments were not related to technical deficiencies; and (4) made award to the bidder that offered the greatest value to the government. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
