CFC Faults GSA's False Statistical Precision In Major Evaluation

March 10, 2008

In Serco Inc. v. United States (Mar. 5, 2008), Judge Allegra sustained protests brought by eight unsuccessful offerors for GSA's $50 billion government-wide acquisition contract for IT products and services after finding unequal treatment in the gathering of past performance information and flaws in the price evaluation and best value tradeoff analysis. Raising an issue never before considered in a bid protest, the court held that false statistical precision in the combined technical scores "intensified the need for the agency to make reasoned decisions considering price and, relatedly, best values."
