B-291409,B-291409.2: Dec 16, 2002
Protest that agency improperly failed to consider that awardee's price proposal is unrealistically low is denied where solicitation contemplated award of a fixed-price contract. Agency failed to consider that certain linguists offered by awardee were currently employed by protester and had signed agreements not to work for any other firm. Is denied where source selection official was aware of the agreements and determined that they would have no impact on performance. The technical approach and past performance factors were significantly more important than price.
