Next Tier Concepts, Inc., of Vienna, Virginia, protests the Department of Agriculture's issuance of a delivery order to Emagine IT, Inc., of Fairfax, Virginia, under request for quotations (RFQ) No. AG-3144-S-12-0007-000002, for support services for the National Resources Conservation Service-Office of the Chief Information Officer (NRCS-OCIO). Next Tier asserts that the agency failed to provide it with meaningful discussions and unreasonably evaluated its proposal. Next Tier also complains that Emagine gained an unfair competitive advantage through hiring a former government employee.
We deny the protest.
