A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) solicitation for helicopter seat bottom covers, contending that the solicitation lacked sufficient detail to permit bidders to prepare intelligent bids. GAO held that the: (1) protester timely filed its protest, since DLA failed to establish a closing date for bids; (2) solicitation clearly stated that bidders had the responsibility of obtaining a test seat; and (3) solicitation did not require bidders to perform a conformance test. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
