SKJ & Associates, Inc.--Costs
B-291533.3: Jul 24, 2003
SKJ & Associates, Inc. requests that our Office recommend the amount it should recover from the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) for the costs of filing and pursuing its protest in SKJ & Assocs., Inc., B-291533, Jan. 13, 2003. In that decision, we sustained the protest because the agency lacked a reasonable basis for rejecting the protester's quotation, and recommended, among other things, "that the protester be reimbursed the reasonable costs of filing and pursuing the protest, including attorneys' fees."
We recommend that SKJ be reimbursed $2,643.45 for its costs of filing and pursuing its protests; we deny the remainder of the claim.
