A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid for hospital services, contending that: (1) the Air Force improperly eliminated its bid from the competitive range based on informational deficiencies that could have been resolved through discussions; and (2) some of the deficiencies were caused by solicitation ambiguities. GAO held that the Air Force reasonably determined that the protester's bid was technically unacceptable and the protester had no reasonable chance for award. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
