DIGEST Agency did not have a reasonable basis to reject the protester's quotation under request for quotations (RFQ) for training services where the RFQ required submission of a technical proposal but gave no guidance as to its content or how it would be evaluated. The agency then rejected the proposal as "unresponsive" because it was too short and too general and failed to provide evidence that the firm understood how to perform the work or to include a plan showing how the firm would implement the substance of the work. SKJ contends that the agency's evaluation was not in accordance with the evaluation criteria. Provides funding (under the Projects for Assistance in the Transition from Homelessness (PATH) program) to states and territories to offer community-based services for people who have serious mental illness who are homeless or at risk of imminent homelessness.
