B-257167,B-257167.2: Aug 11, 1994
- Full Report:
Two firms protested the Army's cancellation of a solicitation for generator static excitation systems, contending that the Army improperly cancelled the solicitation. The first protester contended that it was entitled to award, since it was the apparent low bidder, while the second protester contended that it was entitled to award, since it submitted the low responsive bid. GAO held that the Army properly: (1) cancelled the solicitation, since the specifications overstated the government's minimum needs; and (2) determined that resolicitation would enhance competition. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
