A firm protested a proposed Navy contract award to another bidder for maintenance services, contending that the Navy should reject the proposed awardee's bid because: (1) its prices did not reflect the frequency with which it had to perform a variety of grounds maintenance services; and (2) it contained prices that were too low to cover the cost of materials. GAO noted that: (1) the proposed awardee's bid contained handwritten insertions on the bid schedule that indicated the number of times particular tasks would be performed; (2) the proposed awardee verified its bid prices; and (3) the contracting officer determined that the bidder was responsible. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
