A firm protested the Army Corps of Engineers' rejection of its bid for munitions transportation containers, contending that the Corps improperly rejected its low bid on the second step of a two-step formal sealed bid procurement as nonresponsive for offering a payment term less than that required by the solicitation. GAO held that the Corps properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive because the protester's proposed payment terms differed from those the solicitation required. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
