A firm protested the Soil Conservation Service's (SCS) rejection of its bid and subsequent contract award for archaeological data recovery work, contending that SCS improperly denied its request to correct its low bid. GAO held that SCS properly rejected the request, since the protester did not submit clear and convincing evidence of its mistake and the intended bid amount. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
