[Protest of Air Force Contract Award for Revetment Kits]
B-254242.2,B-254242.3: May 3, 1994
- Full Report:
A firm protested an Air Force contract award for revetment kits, contending that the: (1) Air Force improperly relaxed the solicitation's mandatory delivery terms for the awardee; (2) solicitation's delivery terms were ambiguous; (3) Air Force failed to conduct meaningful discussions with it regarding its contract costs and delivery methods; and (4) Air Force improperly evaluated the bidders' contract costs. GAO held that the: (1) solicitation's delivery terms were uniform and clearly stated; (2) protester untimely filed after bid closing its protest regarding alleged solicitation improprieties; (3) Air Force was not obligated to conduct discussions with the protester, since the protester failed to submit complete cost information; and (4) protester was not prejudiced by the Air Force's erroneous cost evaluation, since it would not have been in line for award even if the errors had been corrected. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
