Bella Vista Landscaping, Inc., B-291310, December 16, 2002 * REDACTED DECISION
B-291310: Dec 16, 2002
Lower-priced proposal in commercial services procurement for grounds maintenance services is denied where record shows evaluation and source selection were reasonable and consistent with evaluation scheme in which price and performance risk were considered approximately equal in importance. Agency was neither required to give additional evaluation credit to protester for its performance as incumbent. Nor to award on the basis of protester's superior performance risk rating where agency reasonably determined payment of associated cost premium was not warranted in light of awardee's lower proposed price and favorable performance risk rating. Contends that the source selection was unreasonable and inconsistent with the RFP's evaluation criteria.
