Protest is denied where in a competitive procurement under the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) the record shows that the evaluation was reasonable and consistent with the stated evaluation factors. 2. Agency's conduct of discussions with two other FSS vendors without affording protester an opportunity to address technical deficiencies in its proposal is unobjectionable where agency reasonably concluded that protester's proposal should be excluded from further consideration because of reasonable concerns about its technical compliance and its higher price. The objective of this acquisition was to obtain the best available commercial pricing based on the agency's consolidation of all services under a single ISP task order.
