A new bid protest decision from the GAO:

B-400771; B-400771.2, Honeywell Technology Solutions, Inc., January
27, 2009

Honeywell Technology Solutions, Inc., of Columbia, Maryland,
protests the award of a contract to ITT Corporation — Advanced
Engineering & Sciences (ITT), of Herndon, Virginia, under request
for proposals (RFP) No. NNG08218142R, issued by the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Goddard Space Flight
Center (GSFC), for space communications network services (SCNS).
Honeywell argues that the agency’s evaluation of offerors’
proposals and subsequent source selection decision were improper.
Honeywell also contends that the agency’s discussions with the
protester regarding its proposal were inadequate and misleading,
that ITT had an impermissible organizational conflict of interest,
and that by retaining a former NASA official as a consultant in
violation of statutory procurement integrity provisions, ITT gained
an unfair competitive advantage.

We sustain the protest regarding the agency’s evaluation of ITT’s
past performance, and deny the remainder of the protester’s
allegations.
