A firm protested a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) solicitation for power circuit breaker repairs, contending that the solicitation improperly: (1) allowed FEMA to incorporate the appropriate wage determination after bid opening; and (2) failed to include sufficient information concerning labor category requirements. GAO held that: (1) the protester was not prejudiced by FEMA failure to include the appropriate wage determinations in the solicitation, since its bid would not have changed if FEMA had complied with regulations; (2) FEMA was not required to use the Department of Labor's job classification directory to classify the bidders' employees; (3) FEMA was not required to provide all details concerning labor requirements; and (4) FEMA provided sufficient information so that bidders could reasonably estimate labor costs. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
