[Protest of DOE Contractor's Contract Award for Janitorial Services]
B-227023: May 18, 1987
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Department of Energy prime contractor's subcontract award for janitorial services, contending that: (1) the solicitation required too many workers; and (2) it timely protested after it learned of the contractor's rationale for the increased level of effort. In addition, the protester claimed reimbursement for its bid and protest preparation costs. GAO held that the protester: (1) untimely filed its protest after bid opening; and (2) acquired no new information after bid opening that would have provided a basis for protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed and the claim was denied.
