A firm protested a Coast Guard contract award for portable dust collectors, contending that the Coast Guard improperly rejected its low bid as nonresponsive. GAO held that the: (1) protester's interpretation of the meaning of a solicitation requirement was unreasonable; and (2) Coast Guard properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
