[Protest of Army Rejection of Bid for Staging Facility Construction]
B-257841: Nov 10, 1994
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid and subsequent contract award for the construction of a satellite staging facility, contending that the Army should have waived its failure to acknowledge the solicitation amendment, since the amendment was not material. GAO held that the: (1) amendment was material, since it changed the specifications for one item; and (2) Army properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge the amendment. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
