HealthCare Resolution Services, Inc. (HCRS), of Laurel, Maryland, protests the award of a contract for medical records coding, coaching, auditing, and training services to Innotion Enterprises, Inc., of Bethesda, Maryland, by the Department of the Army under request for proposals (RFP) No. W81K00-08-R-0022. HCRS essentially challenges the source selection authority's (SSA) reversal of his earlier selection of HCRS's higher-priced proposal for award. That selection decision had been based on a determination that the HCRS proposal's almost 11-percent price premium was warranted by the slightly higher evaluation rating for three proposal strengths identified by the technical evaluation panel (TEP). HCRS contends that the SSA's new source selection decision is unreasonable and inconsistent with the RFP's terms.
The protest is denied.
