B-292445.3: Dec 19, 2003
A bid that expressly states it is a package bid for the complete dismantling of two named ships is an "all or none" bid for those ships and cannot be considered for award of only one of the ships. The agency advised the bidders: Note that the Santa Isabel is currently also being considered for award under other contracting options available to the Maritime Administration. Bid opening was held on June 10. A cover letter submitted with the latter bid stated the following: The enclosed package bid is for the complete dismantling of two vessels. Marine Metal's package bid for both vessels represented the second-low bid if contracts for both vessels were awarded under the solicitation. The individual prices for each of these vessels under the package bid was also lower than the second-low individual bids for each of these vessels.
