B-293335.3: Apr 26, 2004
Saltwater Inc. protests the proposed award of a contract to NWO, Inc., as well as the proposed termination of Saltwater's earlier-awarded contract. This proposed award, and corresponding termination, is based on Saltwater's refusal to sign a modification to its contract issued to reflect (in the agency's view) changes that occurred during a reevaluation of proposals undertaken in response to an earlier protest by NWO. The original award was made to Saltwater pursuant to request for proposals (RFP) No. AB1330-03-RP-0024, issued by the United States Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), for fisheries observer services.
We deny the protest.
