DIGEST Agency evaluation of protester's product design under negotiated commercial item acquisition is unobjectionable where record establishes that the evaluation was reasonably based on assessment of how well the proposed product met the agency's stated requirements. InterOcean contends that its proposal was misevaluated and that under a proper evaluation. InterOcean rather than SOSI would have been in line for award of the contract. Only the award of CLIN No. 0001 for OMS's is at issue here. /1/ The RFP provided for a minimum base order of four OMS units for delivery by September 2002. An alternate to deliver units that use a newer satellite voice and data service that is currently in the process of being phased in by NOAA.
