A firm protested an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) contract award for various temporary services, contending that IRS improperly proceeded with bid opening, since its failure to incorporate applicable wage determinations in the solicitation deprived bidders of an opportunity to prepare bids based on the wages they would be required to pay under the resulting contract. GAO held that IRS (1) timely requested the Department of Labor to establish the required wage rates; and (2) could not further delay bid opening due to its urgent requirements. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
