[Protest of GPO Contract Award for Printing]
B-256894: Aug 8, 1994
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Government Printing Office (GPO) contract award for printing services, contending that: (1) GPO improperly allowed the awardee to modify its bid after bid opening; and (2) the awardee failed to submit clear and convincing evidence of its intended bid price. GAO held that: (1) although GPO improperly allowed the awardee to correct its bid after bid opening and the awardee failed to establish its intended bid price, the awardee did not gain a competitive advantage; and (2) GPO properly waived the bid error as a minor informality, since it did not alter the awardee's evaluated bid price. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
