Americom Government Services, Inc., B-292242, August 1, 2003 * REDACTED DECISION
B-292242: Aug 1, 2003
Agency was not required to augment the proposal by considering information contained in competitors' proposals. Washington. /1/ Americom contends that one of the proposal alternatives that it offered easily could have been made fully compliant. Was improperly excluded from the competitive range on the basis of technical noncompliance. That: the contractor provide two satellites that are at least 4 degrees apart in orbit in order to mitigate the effects of sun outages and radio frequency interference. Satellites have sufficient signal strength to serve Seattle. The extended closing date for proposal submission was March 26. Were determined to be technically unacceptable for failure to comply with mandatory solicitation requirements and were eliminated from the competitive range because correction would require substantial revision and essentially the submission of new proposals.
