B-405868, Jan 5, 2012
Cognosante, LLC, of McLean, Virginia, protests the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) decision to issue a task order to Health Integrity, LLC, of Easton, Maryland, instead of Cognosante, under request for task order proposals (RTOP) No. CMS-11-AUDIT-TO2R, due to an alleged organizational conflict of interest (OCI) on the part of Cognosante. Cognosante asserts that the agencys determination of an OCI and rejection of its proposed mitigation plan were unreasonable.
We deny the protest.
