[Protest of NAVSEA Cancellation of Solicitation for Vessel Maintenance]
B-247053.7: May 15, 1992
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Naval Sea Systems Command's (NAVSEA) cancellation of its solicitation for vessel maintenance, contending that: (1) NAVSEA did not provide it with adequate notice of the cancellation, since the notice was not signed by the contracting officer; and (2) GAO should consider its initial protest against a contract award under the solicitation which GAO dismissed as academic. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it learned of the basis for protest; and (2) NAVSEA gave the protester adequate notification of the cancellation. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
