A firm protested a Navy contract award for the refurbishment of submarine pumps and motors, contending that the: (1) Navy improperly conducted discussions with the awardee and allowed it to reduce its bid price; and (2) awardee's offer violated a requirement for unit price integrity. GAO held that the: (1) Navy properly determined that it miscalculated the awardee's bid price; (2) Navy's attempt to clarify the bid price did not constitute discussions; (3) Navy properly awarded the contract on the basis of initial proposals; and (4) protester failed to show how the alleged unit price deficiency prejudiced other bidders. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
