[Decision Concerning Responsiveness of Bid Under Coast Guard Solicitation for Solid State Flashers]
B-252396: Mar 31, 1993
- Full Report:
The U.S. Coast Guard requested a decision concerning the responsiveness of a bid for solid state flashers. GAO held that the low bid included an additional charge for inspections of supplies and materials, which took exception to the solicitation terms for a firm, fixed price. Accordingly, the Coast Guard should reject the bid as nonresponsive.
