A firm protested a proposed Army contract award for chemical and biological hoods, contending that the Army improperly accepted the awardee's late bid modification. GAO held that the Army properly: (1) accepted the awardee's late bid modification, since it was received prior to bid opening; and (2) made award to the low bidder. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
