DIGEST Protest challenging agency's cost realism evaluation is sustained where record shows that evaluation contained errors that. BACKGROUND This is the second award decision that has been protested to our Office. Terminate the contract awarded to ITT for the convenience of the government should the agency conclude that a firm other than ITT is in line for award. Proposals were assigned adjectival ratings of either excellent. The perceived superiority of the proposal was not worth the associated cost premium. We have carefully examined the allegations and find them all without merit. The offerors' proposed costs of contract performance are not controlling since these may not provide valid indications of the final actual cost that the government is required.
