After reviewing the protest, the Government Accountability Office concluded that the evaluation of proposals was indeed unreasonable and inconsistent with the terms of the RFP. They sustained the protest in favor of Phoenix Air.
Given the decision, the Department of the Interior must now reevaluate proposals consistent with the solicitation's evaluation criteria. The agency can amend the solicitation to advise offerors of the agency's intended evaluation approach, but if it does, it will need to provide offerors with an opportunity to submit revised proposals before it conducts another review and makes a new decision.
"We are very pleased with the outcome of GAO's decision in our client's bid protest. It's gratifying to know that Phoenix Air will have an opportunity to be more fairly evaluated under the set proposal standards and recompete for the work it has already has a history of doing with the Department of the Interior," said Barbara Kinosky, Esq., Managing Partner of Centre.
