A firm protested a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) contract award for construction support, contending that NASA: (1) engaged in technical levelling with the awardee; and (2) performed an inadequate cost analysis. GAO held that NASA: (1) did not engage in technical levelling, since it requested only one round of best and final offers; and (2) performed a reasonable cost analysis of the awardee's bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
