A firm protested an Army contract award for laboratory analysis, contending that: (1) it was entitled to award, since it submitted a low technically acceptable bid; (2) the Army improperly downgraded its bid because it failed to meet an unspecified solicitation requirement; and (3) the solicitation did not require it to package samples for shipment to its laboratory. GAO held that the: (1) solicitation made the bidder responsible for packing and shipping samples to its laboratory; (2) Army reasonably evaluated the protester's bid in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; (3) Army properly awarded the contract to the awardee, since its bid was more advantageous to the government; and (4) protester untimely filed its protest against the solicitation's shipping requirement more than 10 days after bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
