A firm protested a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) contract award, contending that VA should have awarded it the contract, since it was the low bidder. GAO held that: (1) the protester failed to state a valid basis of protest; and (2) VA properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since the protester failed to sign its bid and acknowledge the solicitation amendment. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
