B-252948,B-252950: Jun 3, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm protested the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) rejection of its bid as nonresponsive for construction services, contending that NASA improperly: (1) found its bid bond defective; and (2) rejected its corrections to its defective bid guarantee. GAO held that NASA properly: (1) determined that the protester's bid was nonresponsive, since its bid bond contained language that created uncertain enforceability; and (2) rejected the protester's bid, since the protester could not correct its bid guarantee after bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
