A firm protested an Air Force contract award for military family housing maintenance services, contending that the Air Force: (1) unreasonably evaluated the proposals under certain technical evaluation criteria, including past performance; and (2) failed to conduct meaningful discussions. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) reasonably evaluated the protester's proposal in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; (2) conducted adequate discussions, since it apprised the protester of deficiencies in its bid and afforded it an opportunity to correct those deficiencies; (3) did not mislead the protester during discussions, since the Air Force was not required to identify every weakness in the protester's proposal; and (4) reasonably determined that the awardee's price was complete, reasonable, and realistic. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
