A firm protested a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) contract award for training and support services, contending that: (1) HHS improperly excluded its bid from the competitive range; (2) the amended solicitation specifications were defective; and (3) HHS did not send it the solicitation amendments in a timely manner. GAO held that: (1) HHS reasonably evaluated the protester's bid and determined that it was technically unacceptable, since it contained numerous and substantial deficiencies; (2) HHS properly excluded the protester's bid from the competitive range, since it would require substantial revision to become technically acceptable; and (3) the protester untimely filed its protest against the alleged defective specifications and HHS untimely transmittal of the solicitation amendments after bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
