[Protest of DLA Solicitation for Shredding Machine]
B-253729: Oct 19, 1993
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) solicitation for a shredding machine, contending that the solicitation improperly excluded its product from consideration. GAO held that: (1) the protester's product met the solicitation's safety requirements; and (2) DLA did not evaluate the protester's technical bid. Accordingly, the protest was sustained and GAO recommended that DLA: (1) amend the solicitation to include similar products if the protester's product satisfies its minimum needs; and (2) reimburse the protester for its bid and protest costs.
