As someone who works for a government agency, (federal), and is a contract technical representative, it sounds as though someone is rigging the bid. To specify that the company has to have won awards is not indicative of how well they will perform.

My take on these 'awards' are that they are nothing more than a means for the awarding organization to make money from the 'entry fee' and for the award 'winner' to hang a gold star on their wall, hoping it will give them some credibility.

I'm not sure how to challenge a contract in the state or local arena but this one sure needs it from what you've said. I'd suggest you start by contacting the contracting officer for the agency and go from there if you want to persue it.
