[Protest of NASA Contract Award for Hydraulic Molding Press]
B-244572: Oct 28, 1991
- Full Report:
A firm protested a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) contract award for a hydraulic molding press, contending that NASA improperly rejected its bid as nonresponsive, since it had signed and entered the price on its bid. GAO held that NASA properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since specifications in the unsolicited descriptive literature raised questions as to whether the offered product complied with the solicitation's material requirements. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
