[Protest of DOE Subcontract Award for Radiological Laundry System]
B-251416: Apr 1, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Department of Energy (DOE) subcontract award for a radiological laundry system, contending that: (1) DOE improperly rejected its bid as technically unacceptable; and (2) the solicitation's specifications were partially unnecessary and defective. GAO held that: (1) DOE properly rejected the protester's bid as technically unacceptable, since it did not conform to the required specifications; and (2) the protester untimely filed its protest after bid opening regarding the solicitation's specifications. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
