The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and a proposed awardee requested reconsideration of a protester's sustained protest against the Defense Construction Supply Center's proposed contract award for snow sweepers. GAO had held that the awardee did not submit a proper certificate of procurement integrity. In their request for reconsideration, DLA and the awardee contended that GAO erred in concluding that the signatory witness lacked the authority to bind the awardee to the certificate of procurement integrity. GAO held that the witness was authorized to bind the proposed awardee to the legal obligations contained in the certificate at the time of bid opening. Accordingly, the prior decision was reversed.
