Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reported on federal agencies' compliance with its recommendations regarding bid protests it decided during fiscal year (FY) 1992. GAO noted that: (1) during FY 1992, it received 2,969 protests and 289 requests for reconsideration and closed 3,167 cases; (2) the Coast Guard expressed its regret over its erroneously awarding a contract before GAO rendered a decision during a protest; and (3) rather than complying with a GAO recommendation to correct a flawed procurement, the National Archives and Records Administration entered into a settlement agreement with two other parties who subsequently withdrew their protests.
