A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bids for building repairs, contending that the Army: (1) based the determinations of its nonresponsibility on inaccurate information; and (2) improperly denied it an opportunity to respond to the determinations. GAO held that the Army: (1) reasonably based the nonresponsibility determination on the protester's recent inadequate contract performance and; (2) was not required to allow offerors the opportunity to explain or defend against the evidence. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
