[Protest of Navy Contract Award for Laboratory Conversion]
B-255222: Feb 7, 1994
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Navy contract award for laboratory conversion services, contending that the Navy: (1) improperly rejected its bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge a solicitation amendment; and (2) should have waived its failure to acknowledge the amendment as a minor informality. GAO held that the: (1) wage rate amendment was material to the contract and could not be waived; and (2) Navy properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge the solicitation amendment. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
