[Protest of Army Rejection of Bid and Solicitation Cancellation]
B-239938: Oct 12, 1990
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid and subsequent solicitation cancellation for housing maintenance, contending that the Army: (1) unreasonably failed to reconsider its nonresponsibility determination in light of new information that warranted reversal of the determination; (2) improperly cancelled the solicitation; and (3) should reimburse it for its bid preparation costs. GAO held that: (1) the Army properly reviewed the new information and reasonably determined that reversal of the nonresponsibility determination was not warranted; and (2) since the Army properly found the protester nonresponsible, the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the solicitation cancellation. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
