Higher-priced proposal was unreasonable where the source selection authority did not credit the protester for its substantially lower proposed price. Offerors were informed that the agency planned to make award. The technical evaluation factors were stated to be together more important than price. The following technical evaluation factors and subfactors were identified: 1. The RFP provided that factor 1 was more important than factors 2 and 3. Which were of equal importance. That the subfactors were listed under each factor in descending order of importance. That is. Offerors were required to provide a fixed price for design. The RFP stated that price will not be point scored but will be subjectively evaluated for reasonableness over the life of the contract. . . .
