[Protest of Navy Contract Award for Exterior Painting of Family Housing]
B-250398: Jan 22, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Navy contract award for exterior painting of military family housing, contending that: (1) the awardee did not intend to perform the work specified in the solicitation; (2) the awardee lacked the experience necessary to satisfactorily perform the contract; and (3) the Navy failed to obtain from the awardee an unequivocal waiver of any and all future claims for bid modifications. GAO held that: (1) the Navy did not modify the awardee's contract to change solicitation requirements; (2) the Navy conducted a preaward survey and reasonably determined the awardee's responsibility; and (3) it would not review matters concerning contract administration. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
