A firm protested a Coast Guard contract award for maintenance and support services, contending that the Coast Guard improperly allowed the awardee to correct an erroneous price in its bid. GAO held that the Coast Guard reasonably determined that the: (1) intended unit price was inconsistent with the extended price for the line item; and (2) protester made a clerical error in its bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
