A firm protested a Navy contract award for collision warning systems, contending that the Navy: (1) improperly rejected its bid; (2) improperly determined that its bid did not meet the solicitation's testing schedule requirements; (3) improperly evaluated the awardee's bid; (4) failed to advise all bidders of the awardee's proposed technical modification; and (5) erroneously advised it during discussions that its bid met the solicitation's performance schedule requirements. GAO held that the: (1) Navy properly rejected the protester's bid, since it did not comply with the solicitation's testing schedule; (2) Navy properly evaluated the awardee's bid; (3) Navy was not obligated to advise all bidders of the awardee's bid modification, since it considered the modification a positive aspect of the awardee's bid that warranted an increase in its technical rating; and (4) protester untimely filed its protest that the Navy misled it during discussions. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
