The Forest Service requested reconsideration of a decision that dispelled allegations of a mistake in the bid and contended that the decision did not recognize the realities of timber bidding. Since the contracting officer was on notice concerning the possibility of a bid mistake and the bid was outside the range of the other bids received, the prior decision was affirmed.
