Ahtna-RDI JV, Inc.

Ahtna RDI, JV, LLC (ARJV), a small business located in Anchorage, Alaska, protests the award of a contract to IT Objects, LLC (ITO), a small business concern located in Herndon, Virginia, under request for proposals (RFP) No. 1305M319RNFFS0008, issued by the Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), for information technology services including software development and systems administration, for the Alaska Region of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The protester alleges that the agency improperly determined its proposal ineligible for award based on the protester’s failure to include overtime rates in its price schedule. The protester also argues that the agency’s evaluation of proposals and best-value tradeoff analysis were unreasonable.

We deny the protest.
