A firm protested under several related General Services Administration (GSA) solicitations for guard services, contending that GSA: (1) improperly cancelled the first solicitation and resolicited after determining that its low bid was unreasonable; and (2) should not have awarded an interim contract to another firm after it cancelled the first solicitation. GAO held that GSA: (1) reasonably determined that the protester's bid under the original solicitation was high and properly cancelled the solicitation; (2) awarded the interim contract to the low bidder; and (3) properly resolicited, since it properly cancelled the original solicitation. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
