Protest against Contract Cancellation Is Denied
B-188124: Feb 8, 1977
- Full Report:
A protest against cancellation of contract for window replacement at a VA Hospital was denied. Usually, contract termination for convenience of Government is within discretion of procuring agency, but GAO reviews awards where procedures were defective. Not all bidders received a mailed "clarification" of specifications prior to bid opening, particularly winning bidder, whose bid was based on original IFB and therefore improper.
