Inventory Discount Printers (IDP) appeals the Government Printing Office's (GPO) final decision denying the firm's claim for equitable adjustment for expenses incurred during the processing of Program 380-S Lubrication Orders for the Department ofthe Army. IDP asserts that the contract specifications were ambiguous and that the contracting officer improperly placed and terminated orders without a valid contract modification. As a result, IDP asserts that it is entitled to recover $35,396.75 for expenses incurred during performance of the contract.

We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
