American Environmental Services, Inc. (AES), of Sewickley, Pennsylvania, protests the Defense Logistics Agency's (DLA) award of a contract to Tradebe Treatment and Recycling, LLC, of East Chicago, Indiana, pursuant to request for proposals (RFP) No. SP4500-12-R-0010 for the removal, transportation and disposal of hazardous waste from designated locations in or around Norfolk, Virginia. AES protests that the agency improperly concluded that the past performance of AES and Tradebe were essentially equal and, accordingly, failed to perform a tradeoff between past performance and price.
We deny the protest.
