Honeywell Technology Solutions, Inc.--Costs
B-296860.3, Dec 27, 2005
Honeywell Technology Solutions, Inc. requests that our Office recommend that it be reimbursed the costs of filing and pursuing an initial and a supplemental protest challenging the award of a contract to Assurance Technology Corporation (ATC) under request for proposals (RFP) No. N00173-04-R-LS02, issued by the Department of the Navy, Naval Research Laboratory, for technical and engineering support services. Because the agency has agreed to pay the costs associated with one of the bases of protest, which our Office's attorney identified as clearly meritorious in the context of an "outcome prediction" alternative dispute resolution (ADR) conference, the issue for our Office is whether the protester's reimbursement should be limited to that single issue.
We deny the request.
