A firm protested a Navy contract award for command, control, computers, and intelligence (C4I) devices, contending that the Navy's evaluations of operator staffing levels and price realism were unreasonable and inconsistent with the stated evaluated criteria. GAO held that while the Navy unreasonably evaluated operator staffing levels, its price realism evaluation was reasonable and consistent with the stated evaluation criteria. Accordingly, the protest was sustained in part and denied in part, and GAO recommended that the Navy: (1) request another round of best and final offers from the competitive range and reevaluate proposals consistent with its stated evaluation criteria; (2) terminate the awardee's contract and make award to another bidder, if otherwise appropriate; and (3) reimburse the protester for its protest costs.
