[Claim for Protest Costs Pursuant to Air Force Solicitation]
B-251209.2: May 12, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm claimed reimbursement for its bid and protest preparation costs pursuant to an Air Force solicitation for an aircraft video system, contending that the Air Force's cancellation of the solicitation constituted corrective action in response to its protest. GAO held that the protester was not entitled to reimbursement of its: (1) protest costs, since the Air Force's decision to cancel the solicitation did not constitute corrective action and was not in response to its protest; and (2) bid preparation costs even if the Air Force had taken corrective action. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
