B-234559,B-234559.2: Jun 26, 1989
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Defense Personnel Support Center (DPSC) contract award for defibrillator/monitor systems, contending that DPSC improperly accepted after bid opening a replacement copy of the awardee's final offer. GAO held that DPSC properly accepted the replacement copy, since: (1) it lost the awardee's timely bid; (2) it requested the duplicate copy without informing the awardee of the circumstances; and (3) there was no evidence that the awardee changed any aspect of its final offer in the replacement copy. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
