Download Protest of DLA Contract Modification, U.S. GAO, December 14, 1995.

A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract modification. GAO held that it would not review the protest, since it was a matter of contract administration.

Accordingly, the. A firm protested the award of a contract and the rejection of its bid by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The bid was rejected because DLA determined that the protester was offering nonconforming merchandise.

The protester contested that determination. DLA subsequently informed GAO that the protester was being considered for debarment. Congress had incorporated a sunset provision for GAO protest jurisdiction for DoD and civilian agencies’ task order awards in the NDAA.

InCongress eliminated the sunset clause for the DoD in 10 U.S.C. § c(e), but not for civilian agencies in 41 U.S.C § (f)(3). The U.S. Government Accountability Office ruled Monday that the Defense Logistics Agency made no mistake when it did not renew a Graybar Electric Co.

The evaluation of an offeror's past performance, including the agency's determination of the relevance of an offeror's performance history and the weight to be assigned to a subcontractor's past performance, is a matter of agency discretion, which we will not find improper unless it is inconsistent with the solicitation's evaluation criteria.

Where a solicitation provides for a tradeoff between the price and non-price factors, even where price is the least important evaluation factor, as here, an agency properly may select a lower-priced, lower-rated proposal if the agency reasonably concludes that the price premium involved in selecting a higher-rated, higher-priced proposal is not justified in light of the acceptable level.
