A company protested a contract award to a competitor, alleging that the awardee was nonresponsive because it did not meet the solicitation requirement pertaining to temperatures generated by turbine engines. The protest was denied since it was at the protester's own risk to rely on oral rather than written explanation of the solicitation specifications.
