A firm protested a General Services Administration (GSA) contract award for guard services, contending that: (1) the awardee did not possess the required guard license at the time of bid opening; (2) GSA improperly delayed the award to permit the awardee to obtain the license; and (3) GSA was aware of a mistake in the awardee's bid but failed to take appropriate action. GAO held that: (1) the solicitation required bidders to possess a license prior to contract award, not at bid opening; (2) GSA did not unreasonably delay the contract award to allow the awardee to apply for and obtain the guard license; and (3) the alleged mistakes in the awardee's bid were not for GAO's consideration, since only the contracting parties were in the position to resolve those mistakes. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.
