A firm protested a General Services Administration (GSA) solicitation for custodial services, contending that the solicitation was defective, since: (1) it contained an inadequate compensation rate for certain tasks; (2) it did not provide sufficient building information; and (3) the penalty rates for unsatisfactory performance did not reflect the actual value of the services. GAO held that the: (1) compensation rate was reasonable, since the protester could cover any undercompensation in its overall bid; (2) building data were sufficient for submission of bids; and (3) penalty rates properly reflected the cost to perform the services with government employees and were not ambiguous. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
