B-292699.4, Feb 24, 2004
Consortium HSG Technischer Service GmbH and GeBe Gebdud- und Betriebstechnik GmbH S|dwest Co., Management KG (HSG) protests the corrective action taken by the Department of the Army in response to HSG's protest of the Army's award of a contract to SKE GmbH/Siemens Geb d udemanagement GmbH & Co. OHG, Joint Venture (SKE) for preventive maintenance and repairs of facilities and equipment used by the Defense Commissary Agency in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Specifically, the agency decided to reopen discussions, request revised proposals, conduct new evaluations, make a new selection decision, and if the decision is to award to HSG, terminate the award to SKE. HSG argues that the agency's corrective action should be limited to a reevaluation of the proposals as submitted. It contends that reopening discussions and requesting revised proposals unfairly favors SKE, and is an abuse of agency discretion.
We deny the protest.
