A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid for oil/water separators, contending that the Air Force was required to waive its failure to acknowledge the amendment as a minor informality, since: (1) it constructively acknowledged the amendment; and (2) the amendment was not material. GAO held that the Air Force properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge a material solicitation amendment. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
