[Protest of Navy Contract Award for Lighting]
B-243123: Jul 1, 1991
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Navy contract award for field lighting, contending that the Navy improperly accepted the awardee's late bid. GAO held that the Navy properly considered the awardee's bid, since the postmark and the certified mail receipt showed that the awardee sent its bid by certified mail more than 5 days before bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
