KAES Enterprises, LLC--Protest and Costs
B-402050.4, Feb 12, 2010
KAES Enterprises, LLC, of Puyallup, Washington, protests the cancellation of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) request for proposals (RFP) No. HSFEHQ-09-R-0137, for generator maintenance. KAES also requests that we recommend that it be reimbursed the costs of pursuing its prior protest, which led to the cancellation, as well as its proposal preparation costs.
We deny the protest of the cancellation and the request for reimbursement of proposal preparation cost, but recommend reimbursement of KAES's costs of filing and pursuing its original protest with regard to its challenge to the exclusion of its proposal from the competitive range without consideration of its price.
