A firm protested the Army Corps of Engineers' rejection of its bid and subsequent solicitation cancellation, contending that the Corps should have accepted its late bid modification, since it significantly reduced its bid price. GAO held that the Corps: (1) properly rejected the protester's unreasonably high bid; and (2) could not accept the protester's late bid modification, since its original bid was never considered successful. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
