Light-Pod, Inc. (LP), of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, protests the rejection of its proposal and the award of a contract to Energy Focus, Inc. (EFI), of Solon, Ohio, under request for proposals (RFP) No. N65540-08-R-0033, issued by the Department of the Navy, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division for solid state lighting (SSL) fixtures to be installed aboard Virginia Class submarines. The SSL fixtures use light emitting diodes (LED) and are to replace existing fluorescent lighting fixtures. LP argues that the evaluation of its proposal was unreasonable and that EFI's proposal contained material misrepresentations and thus should have been rejected.
We deny the protest.
