The Department of Agriculture requested a decision concerning the propriety of correcting a mistake after award of contract. The company's request for relief from error in bid was denied because no mutual mistake existed between contracting officer and offeror, and because contracting officer was not on actual or constructive notice of offeror's unilateral mistake in bid.
