When a federal agency is evaluating different offerors’ proposals, it will often use the same adjective in the respective ratings. This week, the Bid Protest Weekly article discusses a recent GAO decision demonstrating that just because two proposals are given the same evaluation rating, it does not mean they are actually equal.
The Bid Protest Weekly is an online journal created and maintained by our Government Contracts Practice Group. This and similar articles analyzing recent bid protest decisions are posted each week on the Bid Protest Weekly website: www.bidprotestweekly.com. The Bid Protest Weekly website also offers a continuously expanding archive of decision digests dating back to 2008 that summarize and categorize GAO bid protest decisions.
