  • The protester alleged that the Transportation Security Administration had not properly evaluated the awardee’s proposal under the prior experience factor.
  • The RFP required the agency to consider the size of offerors’ prior experience examples compared to the anticipated contract.
  • The Agency assigned the awardee a High Confidence rating under this factor, stating that they had demonstrated prior experience that was relevant in terms of both size and scope.
  • But the Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) found that the evaluation record failed to demonstrate that the Agency evaluated whether the size of the awardee’s prior experience examples were similar to the anticipated contract.
  • The evaluation report contained “little, if any discussion of any indicia of the size” of one of projects and conclusory statements that the other projects were similar in size, without any discussion of why and despite differing values and staffing numbers.
  • GAO found that the agency’s evaluation focused almost entirely on scope, rather than size, of the prior experience examples.
  • Since prior experience was the most important evaluation factor, GAO stated the protester was possibly prejudiced by the error and recommended the Agency reevaluate proposals.
