A firm protested a Navy contract award for fatigue data recorders, contending that the awardee's: (1) buyback scheme for used recorders was improper; and (2) past performance was deficient. GAO held that the: (1) awardee's buyback proposal was irrelevant, because its alternate proposal was next in line for award; and (2) Navy reasonably concluded that the awardee's past performance deficiencies were not relevant. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
