Environmental Protection Agency; CGI Federal, Inc.--Reconsiderations
B-299504.3,B-299504.4: Jul 23, 2008
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and CGI Federal, Inc. ask that we reconsider our decision in IBM Corp., B-299504, B-299504.2, June 4, 2007, 2008 CPD para. 64, in which we sustained IBM's protest of the award of a contract to CGI under request for proposals (RFP) No. PR-HQ-05-12521, issued by the EPA for the upgrade of the agency's financial management system. In its protest, IBM argued, among other things, that the agency did not reasonably evaluate the offerors' price/cost proposals. We sustained the protest, concluding that the agency improperly made upward adjustments to fixed-price elements of IBM's proposal and did not reasonably evaluate CGI's price/cost proposal. However, because of subsequent developments, the agency and CGI ask that we reconsider and either rescind (i.e., vacate) or modify our decision sustaining IBM's protest.
We deny the requests for reconsideration.
