A firm protested the Army's cancellation of a solicitation and subsequent partial resolicitation for electrical components, contending that the Army improperly: (1) determined that the bids it received were unreasonable; and (2) allowed bids to expire rather than formally cancelling the solicitation. GAO held that the Army: (1) reasonably cancelled the solicitation, since the bids were 100 to 200 percent higher than the government estimate; and (2) decision to allow the bid acceptance period to expire in order to effect the solicitation cancellation was unobjectionable. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
