The low bidder under a Naval solicitation requested an upward correction of its bid. Correction of the mistake was not permitted since the original worksheet lacked sufficient detail necessary to the formulation of the definite or exact bid price. It was proper for GAO to examine the bidder's worksheets for accuracy of calculations and convincingness of the bidder's methodology.
