Information requirements provided in the solicitation's proposal preparation instructions are not evaluation criteria and do not establish minimum evaluation standards. 2. Protest challenging the agency's consideration of a contract referenced in the awardee's past performance proposal is denied where the agency's actions were within the broad discretion afforded the agency to determine whether a particular contract is relevant to the past performance evaluation. 3. Agency is not required to analyze proposals for price realism where the solicitation does not provide for such an analysis. The contractor is required to provide all personnel. Offerors were advised that the agency would "make a best value award decision" using a "Performance Price Trade-off (PPT)" source selection.
