B-293097: Jan 29, 2004
Paradise Landscape Maintenance, Inc. protests the evaluation of proposals and award to KN Lawn Service, Inc. under request for proposals (RFP) No. N62742-02-R-2211, issued as a competitive section 8(a) set-aside by the Department of the Navy, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, for grounds and tree maintenance services at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The protester challenges the reasonableness of the agency's evaluation of the awardee's proposal and contends that the agency should have awarded the contract to Paradise on the basis of its substantial experience despite its significantly higher price.
We deny the protest.
