Contract Management, Inc., B-292760, November 20, 2003 * REDACTED DECISION
B-292760, Nov 20, 2003
DIGEST Protest that elimination of protester's proposal from competitive range was improper because agency's price analysis was based on flawed government estimate is without merit. Where elimination from competitive range was based on comparison of protester's price to other offerors' prices. Offerors were advised that the agency would make award on a "best value" basis. Within the technical area there were two factors. That also were equally weighted. The record shows that the proposal of one of the competitive range offerors (NMS) was assigned adjectival ratings identical to the ratings assigned to CMI's proposal. The other competitive range offeror's proposal also was assigned identical adjectival ratings except in the technical management area (a subfactor under technical approach).
