A firm protested a Navy contract award for guard services, contending that the specifications were ambiguous. GAO found that: (1) the protester failed to prove that the specifications were ambiguous; and (2) the invitation for bids (IFB) adequately explained the Navy's needs and performance requirements. GAO dismissed an allegation concerning the need for a personnel training IFB specification. Bid protest procedures require that protests of alleged improprieties in a solicitation which are apparent prior to bid opening must be filed by that date. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
