A firm protested the Navy's cancellation of a solicitation for technical support services, contending that the Navy: (1) improperly made award to the awardee under the original solicitation, since its bid did not meet all the solicitation specifications; (2) unfairly induced it to withdraw its original protest; (3) improperly awarded an interim contract to the awardee; and (4) constructively cancelled the original solicitation by issuing an amendment that revised some technical requirements, changed the evaluation criteria, and renumbered the solicitation. GAO held that the: (1) protester's initial protest was academic, since the Navy recognized that the initial award was improper, suspended the contract, and reopened the competition; (2) protester did not provide a valid basis of protest regarding the interim contract award; and (3) protester did not provide any evidence that the solicitation amendment did not reflect the Navy's changing needs. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed in part and denied in part.
