Fordel Films, Inc. protested the award of contracts by the Naval Regional Procurement Office, Washington, D.C., which allowed the successful offeror to change its initial price. Offerors in the competitive range are free to revise their proposals, including price, in response to a request for the best and final offer. Negotiations concerning errors in cost breakdowns were conducted with both offerers in the competitive range. The contracting officer can make an award on the basis of initial proposals without discussion with the offerors. The protest was denied. (SW)
