A firm protested the Maritime Administration's (MARAD) cancellation of a solicitation for heating equipment and related services, contending that MARAD improperly cancelled the solicitation, since it failed to request its best and final offer prior to cancellation. GAO held that MARAD properly cancelled the solicitation and determined that: (1) the protester's bid was high and exceeded the solicitation requirements; and (2) consolidating the equipment and installation requirements would provide greater competition and lower contract costs. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
