DataTrak Consulting, Inc. protests the evaluation of its quotation as unacceptable and the subsequent cancellation of request for quotations (RFQ) No. 03-085, issued by the Indian Health Service (IHS), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as a Buy-Indian set aside for third party billing support services at the Ft. Berthold Service Unit/Minnetohe IHS clinic in North Dakota. DataTrak also protests the terms of the revised solicitation, RFQ No. 03-099, issued after cancellation of the initial solicitation. DataTrak challenges the agency's decision on numerous grounds primarily alleging that the agency's evaluation of its quotation was inconsistent with the RFQ evaluation factors and was inadequately documented, and that the agency acted in bad faith in order to avoid issuing a purchase order to DataTrak. The protester also contends that the revised RFQ is unduly restrictive of competition.
We deny the protests.
