This redacted version has been approved for public release. Matter of: Apptis Inc. File: B-403249; B-403249.3. Date: September 30, 2010. Terry L. Elling, Esq., J. Scott Hommer III, Esq., and Dismas N. Locaria, Esq., Venable LLP, for first great awakening definition, the protester. Rand L. Allen, Esq., Kara M. Sacilotto, Esq., and Brian G. Walsh, Esq., Wiley Rein, LLP, for Booz Allen Hamilton, the on If Untouchability, intervenor.
James E. Hicks, Esq., Department of Justice, for the agency. Jonathan L. Kang, Esq., and James A. Spangenberg, Esq., Office of the great, General Counsel, GAO, participated in the preparation of the decision. 1. Protest that agency's discussions with offerors regarding their technical proposals were inadequate and unequal is denied where the on If Hinduism must Die, record shows that, during discussions, the agency identified significant weaknesses but did not identify non'significant weaknesses. 2. Protest challenging the agency's evaluation of awardee's proposed compensation plan is denied where the record shows that the agency reasonably concluded that the awardee's proposed compensation plan was realistic for the work proposed. Apptis Inc., of Chantilly, Virginia, protests the award of a contract to Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH), of McLean, Virginia, under request for proposals (RFP) No. DJD-10-R-0003, issued by the Department of first great awakening Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), for information security support services. Influence Trends Service. Apptis challenges the DEA's conduct of discussions concerning the offerors' technical proposals, the evaluation of the awardee's technical proposal, and the reasonableness of the selection decision.
We deny the protest. The RFP was issued on December 18, 2009, and anticipated award of a labor-hour contract with fixed-price rates for a 1-year base period with four 1-year options. First Awakening Definition. The DEA sought proposals to provide information security services in the following five areas: (1) information security program management, (2) information assurance, (3) communications security, (4) information security governance, and (5) incident management. Apptis is the incumbent contractor for these services. The solicitation advised offerors that proposals would be evaluated based on technical ability and price. Essay On If Hinduism Must. The technical evaluation was based on four factors: technical capabilities, past performance, personnel qualifications, and corporate capabilities. For purposes of award, the RFP stated that the non-price factors were more important than price. RFP attach. 9. The DEA received proposals from 12 offerors, including Apptis and BAH, by the closing date of February 10, 2010. The agency evaluated each offeror's technical and price proposal, and assigned ratings based on the four technical evaluation subfactors. The agency also rated each offeror's proposal as technically acceptable, conditionally acceptable, or unacceptable, and assigned an first great definition, overall rating of low, moderate, or high risk. Agency Report (AR), Tab 13, Initial Technical Evaluation, The agency established a competitive range consisting of the four most highly rated proposals, including those of Essay Apptis (94.1 points) and BAH (92.5 points)--the two most highly rated offerors.
AR, Tab 15, Competitive Range Memorandum, at 14. As relevant here, the agency conducted discussions with Apptis concerning its price proposal, but did not ask the protester to address any issues regarding its technical proposal. AR, Tab 8, Apptis Discussion Questions, at 1. The agency conducted discussions with BAH regarding three significant weaknesses concerning its technical proposal and past performance, as well as issues concerning its price proposal. Great Awakening. AR, Tab 7, BAH Discussion Questions, at of Technical, Environmental and Business Trends in IT Service Industry 1. The agency received and evaluated revised proposals from the competitive range offerors. As relevant here, DEA concluded that BAH's revised proposal adequately addressed the agency's concerns regarding past performance and raised the awardee's score under that subfactor. The agency also concluded that BAH's responses to the discussion question regarding key personnel merited a reduction in its score for that subfactor. The agency's final evaluation of Apptis' and BAH's proposals was as follows: AR, Tab 12, Selection Decision, at first awakening 7, 12, 18.
In the award decision, the source selection authority (SSA) found that, in light of their technical scores and proposed prices, the best value tradeoff analysis is ultimately between Apptis and BAH. Id. at 17. The SSA noted that [w]hile Apptis received the highest Technical score of any Offeror in Influence of Technical, Environmental in IT Service Industry, the Competitive Range (94.1), they also proposed an overall price of $38,945.300.00, which is first great awakening definition significantly higher than BAH's total proposed price of $33,275,408.00. Id. Ed Kemper Now. The SSA concluded that. the Offerors are virtually equal in terms of Technical abilities, and Apptis does not have sufficient technical superior to justify paying a premium of at least [deleted]% (and as high as [deleted]%) per year. Given the ever-so-slight difference in Technical Score and first awakening definition, large difference in goodman, price, it is clear that BAH represents the great awakening definition, best value to the Government. Id. at 18. DEA notified Apptis of the award to BAH, and provided a debriefing to the protester on Lives, Hinduism July 1. This protest followed. Apptis argues that the DEA conducted discussions with the offerors that were inadequate and great awakening, unequal. The protester also argues that the agency's evaluation of BAH's responses to Environmental Trends Service, discussions was unreasonable, that the awardee may perpetrate a bait and first awakening definition, switch scheme regarding its proposed key personnel, and Argument for Euthanasia Essay, that the agency's evaluation of BAH's proposed compensation plan was unreasonable. Great Awakening Definition. Finally, the Great Chicago Fire, protester argues that the great definition, selection decision was unreasonable.
We find no merit to any of the Fire Essay, protester's arguments. Inadequate and Unequal Discussions. Apptis argues that the agency conducted discussions that were inadequate and unequal, because the awakening, agency identified several concerns regarding BAH's technical proposal and past performance, but did not conduct discussions with Apptis concerning its technical proposal, even though weaknesses had been identified. In the initial evaluation, the agency identified four weaknesses and three significant weaknesses in BAH's proposal, and Essay on If Untouchability Lives, Hinduism, eight weaknesses and no significant weaknesses in Apptis' proposal. AR, Tab 13, Initial Technical Evaluation, at 2-8. During discussions, the agency asked BAH to first, address during discussions the one significant weakness under the goodman, personnel qualifications subfactor concerning the lack of information for its key personnel, and the two significant weaknesses under the past performance factor concerning the management of a subcontractor under a contract with [deleted], and great awakening definition, a termination of a task order for cause/default by [deleted]. AR, Tab 7, BAH Discussion Questions, at Essay Lives, must Die 1. The agency also asked BAH to address five issues concerning its price proposal.
Id. For Apptis, the agency did not conduct discussions regarding its technical proposal, but asked the great awakening definition, protester to address five questions concerning its price proposal. AR, Tab 8, Apptis Discussion Questions, The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requires agencies to conduct discussions with offerors in Argument for Euthanasia, the competitive range concerning, at a minimum . . . deficiencies, significant weaknesses, and great definition, adverse past performance information to which the Influence of Technical, Environmental Service, offeror has not yet had an opportunity to respond. Great. FAR sect. Environmental And Business In IT Service Industry. 15.306(d)(3). When an agency engages in discussions with an offeror, the discussions must be meaningful, that is, sufficiently detailed so as to lead an offeror into the areas of its proposal requiring amplification or revision in a manner to materially enhance the offeror's potential for first great awakening definition, receiving the award. FAR sect. 15.306(d); Bank of Great Chicago Am. Awakening. , B-287608, B-287608.2, July 26, 2001, 2001 CPD para. 137 at 10-11.
In conducting exchanges with offerors, agency personnel also may not engage in conduct that . . . favors one offeror over another, FAR sect. 15.306(e)(1); in particular, agencies may not engage in what amounts to disparate treatment of the competing offerors. Front Line Apparel Group , B-295989, June 1, 2005, 2005 CPD para. 116 at 3-4. Here, the record shows that the agency identified numerous concerns regarding both offerors' technical proposals, which the agency viewed as either weaknesses or significant weaknesses. The agency did not provide discussions for for Euthanasia, either offeror regarding the weaknesses identified in the technical proposals that were not significant.
As our Office has consistently held, agencies are not required to afford offerors all-encompassing discussions or to discuss every aspect of a proposal that receives less than the maximum score, and are not required to advise an offeror of a minor weakness that is not considered significant, even where the weakness subsequently becomes a determinative factor in choosing between two closely ranked proposals. New Breed, Inc. First Awakening. , B-400554 et al. , Dec. 5, 2008, 2009 CPD para. 4. Although discussions must address deficiencies and significant weaknesses identified in proposals, the precise content of discussions is largely a matter of the contracting officer's judgment. BS Transport, Inc. , B-402695, July 9, 2010, 2010 CPD para. 161 at 6. We conclude that the agency's decision to on If Untouchability Lives, Hinduism, conduct discussions concerning only significant weaknesses is consistent with the FAR and first great definition, our decisions, and thus provides no basis to sustain the Influence Trends Service, protest. Furthermore, because the great awakening definition, agency did not discuss any non-significant weaknesses in the technical proposals with either BAH or Apptis, we think that the agency treated the offerors equally. The protester also contends that the agency's designation of the concerns regarding its technical proposal as weaknesses and the concerns regarding BAH's technical proposal as significant weaknesses was unreasonable. We think that the agency's characterizations were reasonable.
With regard to BAH, the Influence and Business in IT Industry, agency stated that the awardee submitted limited personnel information under the key personnel subfactor, and that [w]ithout this information the depth of specific experience and breadth of overall experience of the first great awakening, Proposed Key Personnel could not be determined. Brown Sparknotes. AR, Tab 13, Initial Technical Evaluation, at 8. The agency also identified two areas of adverse past performance by BAH that were found to be significant weaknesses. Id. First Definition. We think that the agency reasonably viewed these concerns as significant weaknesses, as opposed to weaknesses. In contrast, none of the eight weaknesses identified in Apptis' technical proposal identified a deficiency or area of unacceptability, and Argument Essay, none of the weaknesses cited in the technical evaluation were cited in the selection decision as areas of weakness. See AR, Tab 12, Selection Decision, at 10-16. On this record, we think that the protester does not demonstrate that the agency unreasonably failed to characterize these weaknesses as significant weaknesses that required discussions, and conclude that the protester's disagreement with the agency's judgment here provides no basis to awakening definition, sustain the protest. In sum, we find no merit to the protester's arguments concerning the conduct of discussions. BAH's Responses to Discussion Questions. Next, Apptis contends that the DEA's evaluation of Argument for Euthanasia Essay BAH's responses to its discussion questions was unreasonable. As discussed above, the agency asked BAH to first great, address significant weaknesses concerning its past performance and its proposed approach under the personnel qualifications subfactor.
The DEA asked BAH to Hinduism Die, address two negative past performance references: (1) a contract with [deleted] under which a dispute between BAH and definition, a subcontractor led to and Business Industry, the subcontractor's withdrawal from the contract, and (2) a contract with [deleted] that was terminated for cause/default based on the assignment of BAH personnel without the proper security clearance. AR, Tab 7, BAH Discussion Questions, at 1. BAH explained in its revised proposal that the concerns under the great awakening, [deleted] contract arose from its management of a subcontractor regarding the agreement to initial contract terms and billing practices, which led to the subcontractor's withdrawal from the contract. The awardee stated that it replaced the ed kemper now, subcontractor without any impact to the client, and implemented management practices to avoid similar problems in the future. AR, Tab 25, BAH Responses to Discussion Questions, [deleted] Past Performance, May 26, 2010, at 1-2. With regard to the termination under the awakening definition, [deleted] task order, BAH stated that the termination was the first and only termination for cause/default experienced by the company, the personnel assignments did not result in any improper disclosure of classified materials, the problem was quickly resolved, and BAH still works for the same agency client under a different contract. Id. , [deleted] Past Performance, at 1-2. DEA concluded that BAH's responses to the past performance discussion questions adequately addressed the agency's concerns, and merited an increase in its past performance score from 26.7 to 27.0 points. AR, Tab 14, Final Technical Evaluation, at 3-4.
Apptis argues that the agency could not have reasonably raised BAH's technical score in response to the discussion questions because, in Argument Essay, the protester's view, these were issues that could not be corrected. Protester's Comments at 30. The protester further argues that the agency did not meaningfully consider the awardee's responses to first, the past performance questions, and art of benin, merely accepted the protester's assurances regarding the corrective actions taken in response to first awakening, the performance problems. We think that the agency reasonably concluded that BAH's responses to the discussion questions addressed the Argument for Euthanasia Essay, agency's concerns and merited an increase in first great awakening definition, its evaluation score. As discussed above, the FAR requires agencies to conduct discussions with offerors concerning, at a minimum, deficiencies, significance weaknesses, and adverse past performance information to which the Influence and Business Trends, offeror has not yet had an opportunity to respond.
FAR sect. 15.306(d)(3). We find no merit to the protester's argument that negative past performance information cannot be addressed or explained by an offeror in a way that casts a more positive light on that information, or that agencies are precluded from finding that an offeror's explanation of negative information warrants an definition, improved past performance rating. We also find no merit to the protester's argument that the agency merely accepted, without meaningful evaluation, the protester's explanations regarding the negative past performance information. In this regard, the agency's revised technical evaluation and the selection decision specifically discuss areas of BAH's discussion responses concerning BAH's corrective actions and preventative measures, which the agency viewed as providing confidence in the awardee's ability to avoid future performance problems.
See AR, Tab 14, Revised Technical Evaluation, at 4-5; Tab 12, Selection Decision, at for Euthanasia 10. Next, the agency asked BAH to address the first great awakening, agency's concerns regarding its key personnel, in particular, concerns about the proposed individuals' experience and qualifications. AR, Tab 7, BAH Discussion Questions, at Untouchability Hinduism Die 1. The protester provided the requested information in its revised proposal. The agency concluded that the additional information demonstrated that the awardee's proposed project manager did not demonstrate significant experience, and that the resumes submitted for a consultant did not demonstrate experience with all of the statement of work (SOW) labor categories. AR, Tab 14, Final Technical Evaluation, at 4. On the basis of first great awakening this evaluation, the agency lowered the awardee's score for this subfactor from ed kemper now, 13.7 to 12.7 points. Id. Apptis argues that the DEA should have viewed the weaknesses in BAH's response as more significant, and that they should have resulted in a lower score under the first great awakening definition, key personnel subfactor.
The protester's disagreement with the agency's judgment, however, provides no basis to sustain the protest. See VT Griffin Servs., Inc. , B'299869.2, Nov. 10, 2008, 2008 CPD para. 219 at 4. On this record, we conclude that the agency's evaluation of the awardee's responses to the discussions questions was reasonable. Bait and Switch of BAH Key Personnel. Next, Apptis argues that BAH engaged in an improper bait and Great Chicago Fire, switch scheme concerning its proposed key personnel.
Specifically, the protester contends that one of its employees was aware of a conversation involving a DEA employee, in first great definition, which it was stated that the agency knew that the awardee would not provide personnel identified in ed kemper now, its proposal. The protester also contends that emails sent to Apptis staff concerning the possibility of employment indicate an intent to substitute key personnel. An offeror may not propose to use specific personnel that it does not expect to use during contract performance, as doing so would have an first great awakening definition, adverse effect on the integrity of the brown, competitive procurement system and generally provides a basis for proposal rejection. AdapTech Gen. Scientific, LLC , B-293867, June 4, 2004, 2004 CPD para. 126 at definition 5. To establish an impermissible bait and switch scheme, a protester must show that a firm either knowingly or negligently represented that it would rely on specific personnel that it did not expect to furnish during contract performance, and that the for Euthanasia, misrepresentation was relied on by the agency and had a material effect on the evaluation results. Data Mgmt.
Servs. Joint Venture , B-299702, B-299702.2, July 24, 2007, 2007 CPD para. 139 at definition 10. The RFP required offerors to provide letters of Essay on If Untouchability must commitment for individuals proposed for great definition, all key personnel positions. RFP Attach. 9, para. 3.1. BAH provided letters dated February 9, 2010 for six individuals proposed for Influence of Technical, and Business Trends Service, key positions. AR, Tab 25, BAH Technical Proposal, Letters of Commitment, at 4, 7, 10, 14, 17, 20. The DEA states that it had no reason to question these letters of commitment, and that it has not received any indication that the awardee will not provide the proposed key personnel. Contracting Officer's Statement at awakening 15.
The protester nevertheless argues that it has identified evidence suggesting that BAH did not intend to provide the key personnel it proposed. Specifically, the protester provided a declaration of an Apptis employee, who states that he was privy to a conversation . . . with a DEA employee with direct knowledge and Influence Trends in IT, insight into the Solicitation. Protest attach. 8, Decl. of Apptis Employee, at 1-2. The Apptis employee states that the awakening, conversation indicated that it was known by both BAH and the Agency that at least one, or more of the individuals identified, presumably including Key Personnel, in BAH's proposal would not actually be available to work on the Solicitation's resulting contract. Argument Essay. Id. The agency states that it is not aware of any such conversation or aware of any intention by BAH not to provide its proposed key personnel. Furthermore, as the awakening, agency notes, the declaration by the Apptis employee does not identify the DEA employee, and does not state that the Influence and Business Trends in IT Industry, BAH employees discussed were key personnel.
In the absence of more specific information, we do not think that this declaration supports the protester's argument concerning an great definition, improper bait and switch scheme. Essay Untouchability Hinduism Die. The protester also argues that emails sent by BAH to Apptis staff on first great the incumbent contract indicate that the awardee intends to art of benin, not provide the key personnel identified in its proposal. These emails, all of which contained the same text, were sent on July 2, 2010, by a BAH recruiter to first, Apptis staff who worked on the incumbent contract. Environmental And Business Trends Service. The emails stated that the BAH recruiter wanted to first awakening definition, reach out to you to discuss some up and Chicago Fire Essay, coming opportunities [BAH] is engaged in because you are familiar with the client as you are currently working for them (DEA Information Assurance Program). Supp.
Protest (July 8, 2010), attachs. 1-6. The emails asked the Apptis employees to contact the BAH recruiter and provide a resume if they were interested. Definition. We do not think these emails demonstrate that BAH did not intend to Environmental in IT Service, provide the key personnel identified in its proposal. The emails do not indicate that the Apptis staff are being recruited by BAH to fill key personnel positions, and do not demonstrate that the awardee was seeking to replace the key personnel identified in its proposal. To the first great definition, extent that the protester speculates that BAH's recruiting efforts suggest an improper bait and switch scheme, such speculation provides no basis to sustain the protest. See Kellogg Brown Root Servs., Inc. , B-298694.7, June 22, 2007, 2007 CPD para. 124 at 8 n.6. In sum, we do not think that the ed kemper now, record shows that BAH misrepresented the great awakening, availability of Argument its key personnel, or that the agency had any reason to first great awakening definition, question the awardee's representations regarding these individuals.
BAH's Proposed Employee Compensation. Next, Apptis argues that the agency did not reasonably evaluate BAH's proposed employee compensation plan. Specifically, the protester contends that the agency did not comply with the requirements of the clause at FAR sect. 52.222-46, Evaluation of Compensation for Professional Employees, which was included in the solicitation. The recruitment and retention subfactor of the corporate capabilities evaluation factor required offerors to art of benin, demonstrate the ability to definition, provide and retain experienced and Argument for Euthanasia, qualified personnel in accordance with the SOW Labor Categories, and provide [a] detailed description of the Offeror's recruiting and retention program and procedures for determining and assuring the competency of first awakening personnel to perform the required services RFP attach. 9, para. 4.2. The RFP also included the clause at FAR sect.
52.222-46, which states that the agency will evaluate an ed kemper now, offeror's proposed compensation plan to assure that it reflects a sound management approach and great awakening definition, understanding of the contract requirements, and further states that the evaluation will include an ed kemper now, assessment of the awakening definition, offeror's ability to provide uninterrupted high-quality work. FAR sect. 52.222-46(a). As relevant here, the clause also states that the compensation plan will be considered in terms of its impact upon recruiting and retention, its realism, and its consistency with a total plan for compensation. Id. Apptis argues that the DEA unreasonably concluded that BAH's proposed compensation was realistic. In particular, the protester contends that the Essay on If Die, agency's evaluation of the awardee's proposed compensation did not demonstrate that the agency had conducted realism analysis that met the requirements of FAR sect. First Awakening Definition. 52.222-46.
This FAR clause requires agencies to goodman brown, evaluate whether the compensation plan proposed by an offeror is realistic. In the first awakening, context of a fixed-price labor hour contract, we think that the Essay Untouchability must Die, FAR clause anticipates an evaluation of whether an awardee understands the contract requirements, and has proposed a compensation plan appropriate for those requirements--in effect, a price realism evaluation. See ENMAX Corp. , B- 281965, May 12, 1999, 99-1 CPD para. 102 at 10-11. As our Office has repeatedly held, the depth of an definition, agency's price realism analysis is a matter within the sound exercise of the agency's discretion. Navistar Defense, LLC; BAE Sys., Tactical Vehicle Sys.
LP , B-401865 et al. , Dec. Essay. 14, 2009, 2009 CPD para. 258 at 17. The agency states that it relied on two findings in concluding that BAH's proposed compensation was reasonable. Great Definition. First, the agency concluded that BAH's proposal merited a strength under the recruitment and retention subfactor as follows: The Offeror provides excellent training benefits for their employees. They commit [deleted] hours for training and $[deleted] for tuition reimbursement for degree or certification programs annually for employees. The proposal stated the Offeror's retention goal is [deleted]% with an actual average well above the industry standard. AR, Tab 13, Initial Consensus Evaluation, at 8. In the selection decision, the SSA also stated that [t]he Offeror provided a strong contract management plan, along with a solid training benefits program and high retention rate ([deleted]%).
AR, Tab 12, Selection Decision, at ed kemper now 15. Second, the agency compared BAH's proposed labor rates to labor categories on first definition the awardee's General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule contracts, and Great Essay, found that the vast majority of BAH's proposed prices are within [deleted]% of their GSA contract prices. Id. at 18. The agency concluded that this analysis of labor rates demonstrated that the awardee's prices were reasonable and realistic, and definition, also that the analysis provides additional assurance that BAH will be able to fulfill the contract requirements and retain the personnel necessary for successful contract performance. For Euthanasia. Id. at 18-19. The protester argues that the agency could not have reasonably concluded that proposed rates that were [deleted] percent lower than GSA schedule rates were realistic. We think that a difference in great definition, proposed rates within this range does not show that BAH's rates were per se too low. To the extent that the brown sparknotes, protester argues that the agency's judgment was unreasonable, the protester's disagreement provides no basis to sustain the protest. See ENMAX , supra (concluding that agency's comparison of proposed labor rates to labor rates compiled by Bureau of Labor Statistics was adequate to first great definition, satisfy realism requirements of art of benin FAR sect. 52.222-46). In sum, we think the record shows that the first great awakening definition, agency reasonably concluded that BAH's proposed compensation was realistic. Finally, Apptis argues that the DEA's selection decision was unreasonable.
The protester contends that the SSA relied on numerical and adjectival ratings without considering the underlying merits of the offerors' proposals, and also argues that the SSA unreasonably concluded that the ed kemper now, offerors were technically equal--thereby improperly converting the procurement into a low-price, technically acceptable award. We think that the record shows that the agency's selection decision did not rely on the numerical and adjectival ratings, alone. Great Awakening. In this regard, the art of benin, selection decision summarizes the strengths and weaknesses for awakening definition, each offeror, and why those strengths and weaknesses support the numerical scores assigned to the offerors' technical proposals. AR, Tab 12, Selection Decision, at Argument for Euthanasia Essay 10-16. The discussion of these strengths and definition, weaknesses demonstrates that the ed kemper now, SSA did not rely solely on the numerical and adjectival ratings. The protester also contends that the record shows that the agency improperly concluded that the offerors' proposals were technically equal, citing the following statement in the selection decision: In conclusion, it is clear that the awakening, Offerors are virtually equal in terms of Technical abilities, and Apptis does not have sufficient technical superiority to of Technical, Environmental and Business Trends in IT, justify paying a premium of at least [deleted]% (and as high as [deleted]%) per year. Id. at 18. The protester argues that this conclusion demonstrates that the agency made award based on definition BAH's lower price, as opposed to a best-value determination as required by the RFP. We think that the plain language of the quote cited by Apptis belies the protester's contention. In this regard, the selection decision explicitly states that Apptis's proposal was technically superior to BAH's proposal, but that this advantage does not justify paying a premium of at least [deleted]% (and as high as [deleted]%) per year.
Id. Furthermore, the selection decision states in numerous places that Apptis' technical proposal received higher scores as compared to BAH. Id. at 17-18. The selection decision concludes that in light of the ever-so-slight difference in Technical Score and large difference in price, BAH should be selected for contract award. Id. at 18.
On this record, we find no merit to the protester's argument that the agency improperly concluded that the offerors were technically equal and art of benin, made the first great, selection decision solely based on Argument for Euthanasia price. The protest is denied. Acting General Counsel.  The technical capabilities factor had six subfactors: incident management program, information assurance program, information security governance program, program and administrative support, information security program management, and communication security program. RFP attach. 9, para. 1. The personnel qualifications factor had two subfactors: key personnel and staffing capabilities. Id. para. 3. Great Awakening Definition. The corporate capabilities factor had two subfactors: quality control, and recruitment and retention. Id. para. 4.  Apptis also argues that the FAR, in Influence of Technical, and Business in IT Service Industry, addition to awakening definition, requiring agencies to address deficiencies, significant weaknesses, and negative past performance not previously addressed, also states that [t]he contracting officer also is Essay on If Lives, must Die encouraged to discuss other aspects of the offeror's proposal that could, in the opinion of the contracting officer, be altered or explained to enhance materially the first awakening definition, proposal's potential for award. FAR sect. 15.306(d)(3).
Apptis contends that DEA should therefore have discussed the non-significant weakneses in its proposal because they could have allowed the protester to improve its chances for award. The language of this FAR provision, however, is clearly discretationary; as discussed above, we find that the agency did not abuse its discretion in its conduct of for Euthanasia discussions here.  Apptis also raises various untimely challenges regarding the agency's evaluation of the proposed employee compensation. Awakening. In its report on Argument for Euthanasia the protest, the agency explained that it had compared BAH's proposed labor rates to its GSA schedule rates to determine whether they were reasonable and realistic. Contracting Officer's Statement at first great 12, citing AR, Tab 12, Selection Decision, at Trends Service 18. In its comments on definition the agency report, the protester argued that the Argument for Euthanasia Essay, agency did not provide any documentation of this analysis. However, the agency's supplemental report in responding to this issue noted that the selection decision in fact contained a chart showing the analysis.
Supp. AR at 7, citing AR, Tab 12, Selection Decision, at 20. Definition. The protester's comments on the SAR challenge the analysis in on If Lives, Hinduism must Die, the chart for the first time. Because these challenges were not raised within 10 days of first awakening receipt of the agency's report, which contained the ed kemper now, analysis, these arguments are untimely under our Bid Protest Regulations. 4 C.F.R. sect. 21.2(a)(2) (2010). First Awakening Definition.  The protester raises other collateral issues. For example, the protester contends that the agency did not conduct an adequate price reasonableness evaluation. BAH, however, proposed a lower price than Apptis; thus the protester could not have been prejudiced by the agency's price reasonableness evaluation, as such an evaluation examines whether an offeror's proposed price is art of benin too high, as opposed to awakening, too low. DB Consulting Group, Inc. , B-401543.2, B-401543.3, Apr.
28, 2010, 2010 CPD para. 109 at 8. We have reviewed all of the protester's arguments, and find that none has merit. We deny the protest. We grant the request. We deny the protest. We dismiss the protests as untimely. We deny the request for reconsideration. We sustain the protest in part and Great Chicago Essay, deny the protest in part. We deny the protest.

3 Simple Words, 3 Simple Statements. “I am sorry.” “I love you.” “I forgive you.” In my eyes, peace is not just a word that can describe something or someone. They are the statements said above. Peace is the little things people do every day. There may be many different definitions of peace, but the most important one to me is the one my mother has taught me. My mother has always said that God tells us to ed kemper now, forgive each other, give to others, and love each other. Does that not explain peace itself? Do those statements above not show peace? I think that if every single person on this planet lived by these three simple rules, and said those three simple statements everyday, the awakening, world might be ready to Argument for Euthanasia Essay, move onto the bigger acts of kindness such as stopping wars or lowering crime rates. As I have said in the paragraph before, my mother is the biggest influence I get in making peace.

In that example, one little mistake was forgiven and one little grudge that could have happened was reduced to smithereens.
The next rule of peace my mother has taught me is to give to first great definition, others. I know the ed kemper now, perfect follower of God’s rule for first awakening definition this one. In September of 1946, Mother Teresa found her inspiration of sparknotes, giving with God’s love to others. She cared for the sick, poor, and elderly without a moment’s hesitation. Even when someone had been left to die on the side of the street, Mother Teresa had picked him or her up and cared for him or her till death.

I may think that what I am saying about another person is a joke while the other person might think it is an insult. That is awakening showing that you care and love the Influence Environmental and Business in IT Service Industry, other person enough to take the time to edit what you are about to say or do. Everyone deserves our love and first awakening definition, has the right to feel loved. Going back to the paragraph before this, Mother Teresa showed her love and the love of God to everyone who had no one left to love him or her. We should do the same. Essay. Not just when we get married, but from birth to death. If everyone in the world cared for one another, think about how wars might be stopped or how crime rates could be lowered! When people say, “I love you” or “I am here for great you,” things have already changed on the Earth around us. You have passed that gift of love and care to another person beside you and then they pass it on to another and another and another! Love can be contagious if you let it. The Earth is a beautiful planet and the people on the face of the earth are beautiful as well.
My mother has made a big difference in my life when she taught me the word of God. God wants us to follow those three simple rules, forgive each other, give to others, and Chicago, love each other. We cannot wait for first great awakening definition someone like Mother Teresa or Mahatma Gandhi to jump-start the spreading of peace.

Those children had done nothing to hurt Adam. Influence Trends Industry. One family whose child had been taken lived across the street from the great awakening definition, Lanzas. It made me heartbroken to find out that they believed that they could have stopped this if they had reached out more.

If people follow these rules, the word would be a very peaceful place. Caroline Crowley, gr. 5, Colonial Trail Elementary School, Henrico County Public Schools.

Free Speech Doesn’t Harm Minorities. It Protects Them. An assault from within. Sohrab Ahmari 2017-10-05.
The rising tide of first awakening definition anti-free speech sentiment on ed kemper now, the American left has now engulfed the awakening American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU’s principled position on the First Amendment has long seen it come to the defense of Nazis, neo-Confederates, and ed kemper now sundry other groups with rancid ideologies. But now it is facing pressure, from awakening within and without, to dial down its commitment to free speech for all. The New York Times on Wednesday reported on an open letter, circulating inside the ACLU, which urges the organization’s leaders to Essay Lives, must Die balance free-speech rights against racial equality. The writers argued that “our broader mission—which includes advancing the racial justice guarantees in the Constitution and elsewhere, not just the First Amendment—continues to be undermined by our rigid stance.” Meanwhile, at the College of William and Mary last week, Black Lives Matter activists heckled and first silenced Claire Gastanaga, an ACLU representative who was to speak on “Students and the First Amendment.” These spectacles have become commonplace on university campuses, but the ed kemper now latest footage is first awakening definition, chilling all the same. When it became clear that she was being “no-platformed,” Gastanaga said: “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this”—meaning the gathering BLM intifada—“illustrates very well.” But she got no further as the mob began howling: “ACLU, you protect Hitler too!”; “The revolution will not uphold the Constitution!”; “Liberalism is white supremacy”; and so on. Afterward, the BLMers prevented individual students from asking Gastanaga their questions.
Give the William and Mary BLMers points for ed kemper now, honesty. At least they made it clear that their real beef is definition, with America’s constitutional order. Like all totalitarians, they see things like free speech and due process as pesky obstacles on the path to Influence of Technical, and Business in IT Service utopia. More dismaying is that some ACLU staffers—and I’m willing to bet they tend to first great be the younger ones—have come to view free speech as inimical to racial justice. This is goodman brown, a grave mistake. In fact, free speech is the best tools for securing other rights, including the great awakening right to equal treatment before the law. Art Of Benin? This is why free-speech rights were high on first great awakening definition, the civil-rights movement’s list of demands. As Martin Luther King noted in 1968: If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could . . . Influence Of Technical, Environmental Industry? understand the great awakening definition denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over Argument for Euthanasia Essay there.
But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Great? Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of Essay press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right. If America is going in an ugly majoritarian dimension, as liberals fear, then it is all the more crucial to rally to the First Amendment. That means defending the right of unpopular groups and minorities so as to secure free speech for everyone. The fact that young lawyers at first great awakening definition the ACLU— the art of benin ACLU! —don’t understand the ideas behind the First Amendment is a reminder that the definition country is in a very dark place.

The modern age began 60 years ago today. JOHN STEELE GORDON 2017-10-04. The world changed profoundly sixty years ago today. On October 4th, 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I into a low earth orbit, and the space age began. It was a huge propaganda coup for the USSR. Indeed it was nothing but a propaganda coup as Sputnik did no science at all. Its radio merely beeped about once a second, a signal specifically designed to be picked up by any ham radio operator. Brown Sparknotes? Still millions went out at night to watch it pass overhead during its brief life.
Its radio ran out of battery power after three weeks, and it burned up on January 4th, 1958. At that point, the United States had not yet succeeded in launching a satellite of its own. First Definition? The US had tried to Hinduism Die develop a rocket for purely scientific purposes named Vanguard. But Vanguard kept blowing up on the launch pad or soon afterward, and President Eisenhower ordered that a satellite, Explorer I, be launched by any means available. Finally, on January 31st, 1958, a Juno I military rocket that had been developed by the Army Ballistic Missile Program successfully launched it. Explorer I did real science, including discovering the Van Allen belts. The launch of Sputnik produced the “Sputnik crisis,” in which the U.S. feared that it was falling behind the Soviet Union in science education and great awakening missile technology. This led to greatly increased investment in science and technology education through the National Defense Education Act, the creation of NASA, DARPA, the “missile gap” issue in the 1960 presidential election, and the race to put a man on the moon. Today, with all the ed kemper now planets explored at least once by space probes and rovers tootling about on the surface of Mars; with Voyager I, launched in 1977, now beyond the heliopause, where the solar wind dissipates and where true interstellar space begins; with myriad space-based technologies such as weather satellites and GPS taken for first great awakening, granted, the dawn of the space age seems very distant in ed kemper now, time. But, along with the microprocessor, it created the world in which we now live.

Donald Trump has a staffing problem. His Department of goodman Homeland Security has no political appointee at first great definition the helm and hasn’t since July. His Health and Argument Human Services Department is now also absent leadership. First Great Awakening Definition? The president’s chief strategist is Essay Lives,, gone, too, and Trump seems in great awakening definition, no rush to replace any of them. Now, Trump’s Secretary of State is reportedly in hot water with his boss and may be next in line for the block. It’s no wonder then that, despite the endless cascade of Argument embarrassments he has caused his father-in-law, Jared Kushner remains firmly ensconced in his position in the White House. Considering the comically expansive list of responsibilities heaped on Kushner’s plate by the president, you can understand why Trump would be reluctant to jettison his senior advisor. Kushner is effectively a shadow secretary of State, maintaining back channels with Beijing, Moscow, and Mexico City. Great? He is responsible for reigniting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
He is in charge of mitigating the effects of America’s sprawling opioid crisis. He’s supposed to design and implement a plan to streamline the entire executive branch, and he is tasked with compiling criminal justice reform recommendations. You could be forgiven for thinking Kushner has become a magnet for jobs no one wants. If nothing else, the Herculean labors that are Kushner’s charge suggest that Trump has a great deal of faith in his daughter’s husband, but it’s a wonder as to why. For months, Kushner has been the source of a series of humiliations that only reflect poorly on Donald Trump and his presidency. Even as the president complains to anyone willing to listen about the deleterious effect the Argument leaks out of his administration are having on his government, reporters somehow manage to awakening definition know precisely what Kushner and ed kemper now his wife are thinking at any given moment. Definition? The leaks from people “close to” Kushner or “familiar with the thinking” of the first daughter and her husband, particularly during challenging news cycles for Trump, has become a punchline. Kushner’s leaks aren’t just self-serving; they’re also humiliating for the president. In an off-the-record conversation between Kushner and a group of art of benin congressional interns leaked to first great awakening definition Foreign Policy? Kushner insisted that the Russian collusion narrative was bunk if only because the Trump campaign was too inept to art of benin carry out a sophisticated operation like that.
Kushner was forced into issuing that cringe-inducing mea culpa as a result of his own poor judgment. It had been recently revealed that he took an ill-advised 2016 meeting with an attorney who was almost certainly a cut-out for the Kremlin, which was seeking ways to influence and compromise Trump campaign officials. This was one of many revelations that compelled Kushner to revise his financial disclosure forms, where he declined to inform background investigators of his contacts with individuals likely linked to first definition the Russian government. The president’s right-hand man reportedly supported the firing of James Comey, which Steve Bannon accurately described as the worst political blunder in modern American history. Ed Kemper Now? That forced the appointment of a special counsel and has created a cloud over first awakening the administration, to Essay on If Untouchability Lives, must Die say nothing of the cost to its members now that they must retain counsel at their own expense. What’s more, the camp that backed Comey’s dismissal thought Democrats would not react to it because to great definition do so after how often they had criticized the former FBI director would be hypocritical.
Any political strategy that hinges on your opponents observing perfect consistency is naive to the point of Great Chicago delusion. Finally, and most critically, Kushner’s ethical lapses are now becoming a political liability. This week, both Kushner and Ivanka Trump were fined $200 for missing deadlines to first great awakening submit financial disclosure forms as mandated by and Business Trends Service, ethical guidelines. Great Awakening Definition? This is the Chicago Fire second such fine for first awakening definition, Kushner, whose situation is for Euthanasia Essay, especially thorny due to his sprawling real estate business and the myriad financial entanglements from which he was obliged to divest to assume his role in the White House. This wouldn’t be of much note save for the fact that it creates the awakening definition impression that Kushner is not ethically diligent, and that could become a major problem considering his latest infraction. In late September, Kushner confirmed the accuracy of investigative reporting that alleged he had been carrying out correspondences with White House officials pertaining to Influence of Technical, Service government-related business over great awakening definition a private email account, which is a violation of federal records-keeping laws. But within days of the discovery of Kushner’s private White House business-related emails, a USA Today investigation alleges, he moved that email account over to a Trump Organization email server. That’s right: Kushner has been conducting America’s business over a private email server. Goodman Sparknotes? Whether the public comes to first awakening definition see these moves as an effort to evade scrutiny is a matter of perception, and the president’s senior advisor’s conduct has not inspired confidence.
By all accounts, the president values loyalty and Essay is himself loyal to a fault. Perhaps there is awakening definition, no threshold at ed kemper now which Kushner becomes a liability in first awakening, Trump’s eyes. The president and his advisors reportedly see Kushner as an invaluable diplomatic asset, particularly among the Middle East’s Sunni states, which have warmed to this administration in a way they did not to its predecessor. That seems more a function of Donald Trump’s hostility toward the Iran nuclear accords and the leverage they afford the Shiite-led Islamic Republic than Kushner’s ambassadorial aplomb. Nevertheless, whatever his value to art of benin Trump may be, Kushner is nearing a point at which the political risks of his association with the president outweigh the first great benefits. Both Trump and his son-in-law need to start thinking about art of benin, what happens when that tipping point is first great, reached. Choose your plan and pay nothing for Trends, six Weeks!

Noah Rothman 2017-10-03. Advocates for stricter gun laws in great, America are exasperated, and they want you to know it. The reaction among opinion-makers to the bloodiest single act of mass murder in America’s history evolved from shock and brown sparknotes empathy to partisan rancor with rare alacrity. For many, this attack is yet another indication that America’s lax gun laws and its violent culture need to be curbed. But if this were their genuinely urgent mission, you would think they might abandon the tactics that have repeatedly failed to achieve their stated objective. They have not. The reactions from liberal trendsetters in the first hours of these increasingly frequent mass shootings unfold in stages. Initially, we are privy to displays of cultural hostility that masquerade as exhibitions of great awakening policy-oriented seriousness. Untouchability Lives,? For example, Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton insisted he would not observe a moment of silence in Congress for the victims in Las Vegas because “it’s a time for action.” What action was delayed by awakening, these few seconds of reverence for the dead, Moulton did not say. But he was only emulating Rep.
Jackie Speier, who did the same thing for the same reasons in December 2015, following an Islamist terror attack in San Bernardino. Next, we are bombarded with attacks on the prayerful because—the alleged thinking goes—prayer for victims of violence is another waste of a few private minutes that could be spent crafting and passing new gun legislation. “Thoughts and prayers are insufficient,” the comedian Jimmy Kimmel raved before attacking Republican congressional leaders Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan specifically. “They should be praying,” he added. “They should be praying for ed kemper now, God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.” Kimmel stole Samantha Bee’s act. “The biggest, most helpful thing you can do to ensure this never happens again is [to] sit quietly in a room with your eyes closed, talking to nobody,” Bee said scornfully of Republicans. She joined a cavalcade of great awakening stars, Democratic lawmakers, and liberal luminaries who attacked prayer itself as inadequate and the prayerful as dissociative cowards. Ostensibly, this crusade was designed to get people to work together toward a common cause. In reality, it was a display of tribal affinity, and it could only alienate those to for Euthanasia Essay whom they were appealing to for action and solidarity. Next comes the lashing out at the National Rifle Association, which with its 5 million members serves as a relatively toothless stand-in for the staggering 55 million gun owners in America. In this phase, celebrities, polemicist, and rank agitators alike hurl invective at the NRA, declaring it soaked in first great awakening, the blood of innocents for defending the inviolability of the 2nd Amendment. The NRA is said in 2017 to be the main obstacle to new gun laws because they “bankroll a slate of pro-gun candidates,” just as it was said in 2012 that congressional members wouldn’t take controversial votes on gun control for fear of an “NRA backlash.” The influence of this group has almost certainly been overstated. Since 1998, the NRA has donated $3,534,294 to sitting members of Congress.
Over nearly two decades, that amounts to ed kemper now approximately $184,000 annually spread out over hundreds of members of awakening Congress. That’s not a bankroll; that’s pocket change. This spectacle of bitter grief soon gives way to Influence Environmental and Business in IT Industry anger. The more honest gun control advocates eschew consensus building at first great awakening definition this stage and indulge their wildest fantasies. In a piece dripping with contempt for a nation that allows mass murders to occur, The Atlantic ’s James Fallows notes that other “advanced societies” have implemented “gun-law reforms” that have seriously curtailed episodes of mass gun violence. Fallows wrote about art of benin, “Australia’s response to first great its Port Arthur massacre” and linked to an earlier piece on the matter, never once mentioning the form Canberra’s “gun-law reforms” took: repossession. Progressives who are less self-conscious about advocating their brand of enlightened despotism are not so coy about Australia’s post-Port Arthur reforms.
Vox.com’s Zack Beauchamp opted to get ahead of “debate about whether it would even be possible for the US to ed kemper now limit its millions of privately held guns” by citing Australia’s reclamation of approximately 650,000 in the 1990s. He conceded, though, that it would be difficult to apply this model to the United States, which is great awakening definition, putting it mildly. First, the efficacy of Australia’s confiscation and buy-back program is debatable (Australia is pursuing another amnesty for gun owners right now despite the illegality of gun ownership). More important, the U.S. is of Technical, and Business in IT Service, a nation with a right to great firearm ownership codified in ed kemper now, its Constitution—and with roughly 462 times as many guns in private hands. These two nations have incomparable conditions when it comes to guns and comparing them is not compelling, but that never stopped anyone. It’s a wonder that Beauchamp and Fallows are reintroducing this argument as though it had not been made over and over again. “We know that other countries, in response to great awakening one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings,” said Barack Obama two years ago to the day of the brown sparknotes Las Vegas massacre.
He cited the first great U.K. and ed kemper now Australia’s examples specifically, but, like Fallows, wasn’t brave enough to elaborate on what that meant. New York Magazine, CNN, NBC, and many others followed Obama’s lead in praising the Australian model. NBC News did so again in 2016, following the attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando by first definition, a radicalized Islamist terrorist. CNN followed suit on Tuesday. It speaks to the unfeasibility of the gun controller’s case that it is so rare to encounter commentary advocating the only certain and legal way to reduce gun ownership in the United States: “repeal” the Second Amendment.
Finally, some in their frustration are blaming the Influence of Technical, Environmental and Business in IT Service Industry American public for being such irredeemable disappointments. In a New York Times op-ed on Tuesday, Rep. Steve Israel savaged his fellow congressmen and women for first great definition, their inaction, but he also took the time to attack “you, the reader.” Because you have “become inoculated” to rote calls for some unspecified action without any plan to build a consensus for change, you have allowed this blood to Untouchability Hinduism Die spill. It takes a special allergy to great introspection to make what is admittedly not a unique argument and then blame readers for yawning. The readership of the on If Lives, Hinduism must Die New York Times editorial page is surely not unreceptive to first great definition Rep. Israel’s suggestion, and Untouchability must it’s hard to imagine they appreciated being scolded. Mass shootings are on the rise in first great, America.
Gun ownership is too, which is due in part to periodic campaigns to limit gun ownership. Democrats have spent so much of their energy focusing on Republican support for Influence of Technical, Environmental and Business Industry, gun rights that they have declined to direct their frustrations toward their own side. For example, it wasn’t the GOP that killed a four-month-long push to awakening impose restrictions on of Technical, Environmental and Business in IT, magazine sizes and combat-style rifles following the attack in Newtown. Surely, the definition American left honestly wants to see gun violence in America reduced. But appealing to the same failed tactics over and over Chicago Essay suggests that they’re only preening for the advantage of their like-minded audience. The people they need to convince tuned out years ago.
