[Protest of DLA Contract Award for Multimeters]
B-253195: Aug 13, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract award for multimeters, contending that: (1) the awardee's product did not meet the solicitation's brand-name specifications; and (2) DLA should have apprised bidders that it would accept products that lacked certain features. GAO held that the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest, since: (1) it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained; (2) it was not prejudiced by DLA acceptance of the awardee's alternative product; and (3) four other bidders submitted low bids for alternative products. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
