A firm claimed reimbursement for its bid and protest preparation costs pursuant to its protest of an Air Force solicitation. GAO held that: (1) the protest was academic, since the Air Force cancelled the solicitation; and (2) there was no basis on which to reimburse the protester, since the merits of its protest were not determined and the Air Force did not unduly delay taking corrective action. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
