CWT states that the contracting officer changed the technical evaluation "by substantially downgrading CWT in critical criteria. The contracting officer drafted the source selection decision, which was approved by the source selection authority SSA. The record, however, shows a well-documented, reasoned evaluation and award decision.
We address a few representative examples below. The contracting officer stated that she did not consider "incumbent status in itself to be a strength" and further maintained that while she found that CWT had addressed all of the elements of the PWS in its approach she did not find that CWT "offer[ed] an approach that [was] innovative or better than that which OCC currently has.
For example, the contracting officer considered it a strength that each agent would go through OCC-specific training and would be tested at the end of training. Corporate Experience CWT argues that the contracting officer unreasonably lowered its corporate experience rating and raised the corporate experience rating of the awardee.
CWT argues that it was "substantially prejudiced" by the failure of the agency to treat the vendors equally in the evaluation.
However, because of the "limited information" described in the corporate experience narrative, the contracting officer took exception to the adjectival rating assigned by the TET for this factor.
Here, the record shows that the contracting officer was aware of and considered the findings of the TET and that, based on her evaluation, she disagreed with some of those findings and reasonably documented her conclusions.

In making his final decision, the SSA took into account the substantial confidence ratings both proposals received for past performance, and decided that price was the significant discriminating factor in Metro not receiving award of the contract.
Jul 6, The fact that a reevaluation varies, or does not vary, from an original evaluation does not constitute evidence that the reevaluation was unreasonable.
It is implicit that a reevaluation could result in different findings or conclusions. Here, under the staffing plan subfactor, vendors were required to demonstrate how their staffing plan supported the technical approach by providing labor categories, experience and skill level of proposed personnel; labor hours; and a cross walk to the PWS requirements.
May 18, 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 of technical competence available at a lower price.
Blue Rock Structures, Inc.
In essence, the SSA concluded there was no basis to distinguish these proposals under this factor. In conducting the tradeoff, the SSA concluded that the offerors were essentially equal under the first three non-price factors. As an initial matter, the source selection was not reasonable because--as set forth above--it was based on an unreasonable evaluation of the technical approach factor.
