A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive for semitrailer mounted fabric tanks, contending that the Army unreasonably determined that its bid was nonresponsive. GAO held that the Army: (1) erroneously permitted the protester to correct its bid after bid opening; and (2) reasonably determined that the protester's bid was nonresponsive, since it failed to include prices for two line items. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
