A firm requested reimbursement of its protest costs pursuant to its protest of an Army Materiel Command (AMC) contract award for protection equipment systems, contending that AMC took corrective action in response to its protest. GAO held that: (1) protest costs could only be awarded if AMC unduly delayed taking corrective action in response to the protest; and (2) the protester was not entitled to its protest costs, since AMC took prompt corrective action. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
