A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive for copy machines, contending that the: (1) Army orally advised it that if it discontinued its product during the bidding process, the Army would accept the bidder's most current model; and (2) descriptive literature it furnished with its bid showed its product's compliance with the salient characteristics. GAO held that the: (1) Army's alleged oral advice was not binding; and (2) Army properly rejected the protester's bid, since its descriptive literature indicated its proposed product's nonconformance with the requirements. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
