Rome Research Corporation, B-291162, November 20, 2002 * REDACTED DECISION
B-291162: Nov 20, 2002
DIGEST Protest of agency's evaluation of proposals is denied where the record shows that the evaluation was reasonable and consistent with the solicitation's evaluation scheme. The RFP stated that the technical factors combined were significantly more important than price (price. Was to become more important as proposals approached technical equality). Key personnel/staffing and past performance combined were approximately equal in importance to the most important technical factor. Each offeror's technical proposal was to be adjectivally rated under each evaluation factor. The adjectival ratings were outstanding. The proposal earns the score of Outstanding since it meets and exceeds the solicitation requirements and the excess is beneficial to the Navy. . . .
