- Full Report:
Verestar Government Services Group protests the award of a contract to WorldCom Government Markets under request for proposals (RFP) No. 52-DGNW-2-91006 issued by the Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for the provision and operation of the International Satellite Communications Service (ISCS) to disseminate weather information and warnings to the international community. Verestar protests that the agency improperly determined that WorldCom was a responsible offeror. Verestar also asserts that the agency failed to conduct a proper cost realism analysis and improperly made an award determination on the basis of the low-price technically acceptable proposal, in derogation of the RFP award criteria.
We deny the protest.
