A firm protested Navy and Department of Energy (DOE) contract awards for the management and operation of a nuclear power laboratory, contending that the Navy and DOE: (1) unreasonably evaluated the competing proposals; and (2) failed to conduct a proper cost/technical tradeoff. GAO held that the Navy and DOE: (1) reasonably evaluated the protester's and the awardee's proposals in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; and (2) performed a proper cost/technical tradeoff in selecting the awardee's technically superior, higher-priced bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
