This week’s Bid Protest Weekly article focuses on a disagreement between GAO and the Court of Federal Claims. In the case at issue, the protester challenged an agency’s decision not to make an award to the protester under a multiple-award ID/IQ contract. After GAO denied the initial protest, the protester brought its challenge to the Court of Federal Claims. The Court was more receptive to the protester’s arguments, sustaining the protest and ordering the agency to conduct a re-evaluation.
