DIGEST Protest alleging that agency improperly released solicitation materials containing protester's proprietary information is denied where protester fails to provide clear and convincing evidence rebutting agency's determination that materials at issue were based on publicly available information and general quality control concepts commonly used in epidemiological studies. The protester is the database system subcontractor of the incumbent contractor of ART data collection services for the agency. TNG argues that with the released information other firms will be able to replicate its software and easily access its proprietary database. The contractor is to develop a standardized data collection system to track the use of ART procedures by clinics and medical practices in the United States and its territories.
