Pernix-Serka LP, doing business as Pernix-Serka Joint Venture (PS), of Lombard, Illinois, protests the award of a contract to Desbuild-Limak-Group 77 Joint Venture (DLG), of Hyattsville, Maryland, under request for proposals (RFP) No. SAQMMA-12-R-0271, issued by the Department of State (DOS), for design-build construction at the United States embassy compound in Baghdad, Iraq. PS argues that DOS failed to apply a requirement that DLG be licensed to do business in Iraq, and that DOS incorrectly determined that DLG was entitled to a price evaluation preference applicable to American-owned firms.
We deny the protest.
