A firm protested the Forest Service's decision to allow the awardee to correct its bid price mistake, contending that it was improperly displaced as the low bidder. GAO held that the Service properly permitted the awardee to correct its bid price mistake, since there was clear and convincing evidence of its mistake and its intended bid price. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
