B-310766: Jan 23, 2008
IVI Corp. protests the award of a contract to Vacuum Precision Technologies under request for proposals (RFP) No. FA7000-07-R-0032, issued by the Department of the Air Force for a Multi-Layer Precision Optical Coating System. IVI argues that the agency failed to timely evaluate its proposal. The Air Force acknowledges that it temporarily lost IVI's proposal, but argues that it has now evaluated the proposal and reasonably determined that it is not technically acceptable. In response, IVI asserts that the agency's evaluation of its proposal was unreasonable.
We deny the protest.
