Limits On Bid Protest Review Reinforced


In Alabama Aircraft Indus., Inc.--Birmingham v. U.S. (Nov. 17, 2009), the Federal Circuit reversed the lower court for rewriting the RFP and then finding that the agency had not conducted a reasonable price realism analysis, when its review should have been limited to whether the agency's evaluation was consistent with the criteria as set forth in the RFP. The appeals court noted that this was not a case in which the agency had failed to consider an important aspect of the situation, but, rather, had considered it in a reasonable way different from that articulated by the lower court.
