B-241062: Jan 8, 1991
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Forest Service's rejection of its bid for boat launch reconstruction, contending that the Service: (1) improperly rejected its bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge a solicitation amendment that did not materially affect its bid; and (2) failed to send it a copy of the amendment. GAO held that the: (1) Service properly rejected the protester's bid, which failed to acknowledge an amendment that increased wage rates; and (2) protester did not avail itself of every reasonable opportunity to obtain the amendment. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
