[Protest of SBA Contract Award for ADP System Upgrade]
B-224351,B-224351.2: Sep 26, 1986
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Small Business Administration (SBA) contract award to another firm for computer equipment, contending that SBA: (1) improperly accepted equipment that deviated from the solicitation requirements in various respects; and (2) denied it an equal opportunity to compete. GAO held that: (1) the solicitation did not require compliance with certain federal computer regulations; (2) the awardee was not required to provide maintenance services because SBA had already contracted with the protester for such services; (3) the matter of whether the awardee delivered a defective maintenance certificate was one of contract administration, which it would not consider; and (4) the protester failed to show how it was prejudiced by the SBA actions. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
