A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid and subsequent contract award for tailoring services, contending that the Army should waive its failure to acknowledge a solicitation amendment as a minor informality, since the amendment did not materially affect its bid. GAO held that the: (1) amendment, which incorporated an uninterrupted-service requirement, was not material, since it failed to significantly affect the price, quantity, quality, or delivery of services; and (2) Army should waive the protester's late acknowledgment of the amendment as a minor informality. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that the Army: (1) terminate the contract and make award to the protester; and (2) reimburse the protester for its protest costs.
