B-293098, Jan 30, 2004
DIGEST Evaluation of protester's technical quotation as technically unacceptable was unobjectionable where agency reasonably concluded that quotation failed to demonstrate that it met solicitation requirements. The acquisition contemplated an award under the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) and was conducted pursuant to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 8. The subscription service was required to provide an extranet delivery system. Quotations were to be evaluated on the basis of four factors. Quotations were rated using a color-coded system of blue (exceptional). Award was to be made on a "best value" basis. Advised vendors that it was critical that quotations be fully responsive to the RFQ.
