HK Systems, Inc.--Protest and Reconsideration, B-291647.6, B-291647.7, August 29, 2003 * REDACTED DECISION
B-291647.6,B-291647.7: Aug 29, 2003
DIGEST Award to offeror that submitted low-priced proposal offering equipment required by the solicitation is unobjectionable. Especially where offeror also was found technically more advantageous. HK principally asserts that the awardee's proposal is technically unacceptable because certain equipment proposed by Siemens does not comply with the RFP's commerciality requirements. Provides that the non-price evaluation factors when combined are significantly more important than price. Provided that all firm performance requirements specified in the RFP are satisfied by the proposed design. The commercial product must have proven. The field experience of each specific equipment product shall have been gained by an identical or previous model to the one being offered.
