A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid under a solicitation for furnishing material for and installing an office. The protester contended that the solicitation did not specify a free on board (FOB) point for materials. GAO found that the solicitation did not permit the delivery of any portion of the contract at another location and held that the Army properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive since it stated materials would be furnished at another FOB area. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
