A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive for tank closure, contending that the Air Force failed to waive its bid's failure to acknowledge a solicitation amendment. GAO held that the solicitation amendment imposed no substantive or different requirement. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that the Air Force: (1) terminate the contract and make award to the protester, if otherwise appropriate; and (2) reimburse the protester for its protest costs.
