The Government Accountability Office has publicly released its decision regarding the protest by Eagle Technologies, Inc. related to the award of a 5-year, $67M task for platform and development services in support of the HHS' Office of the Inspector General. This was the first task order awarded against the $94M HHS OIG Platform and Development Services BPA.
Protest asserting that awardee possessed an organizational conflict of interest is dismissed where protester’s allegations are based on speculation and do not meet the requirements of our Bid Protest Regulations.
Protest challenging the agency’s interpretation of the solicitation’s evaluation criteria is dismissed as untimely where the protester was advised of the agency’s interpretation but elected to challenge that interpretation more than 10 days later.
Eagle Technologies, Inc., a small business located in Arlington, Virginia, protests the issuance of a task order to Dynanet Corporation, located in Elkridge, Maryland, under request for quotations (RFQ) No. 140D0421Q0158. The RFQ was issued by the Department of the Interior (DOI) for development and platform support services for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG). Eagle argues that the agency failed to adequately consider whether Dynanet has an organizational conflict of interest (OCI). The protester also alleges that DOI misevaluated quotations, conducted a flawed best-value tradeoff analysis, and evaluated vendors disparately.
We deny the protest in part, and dismiss it in part.
