[Claim for Protest Costs for Protest of AID Solicitation]
B-257835.2: Apr 3, 1995
- Full Report:
A firm requested reimbursement of its protest costs pursuant to its protest of an Agency for International Development (AID) solicitation for computer software and support services, contending that the solicitation requirements unduly restrictived the competition. GAO held that: (1) AID reasonably cancelled the solicitation, since it received no bids that satisfied the solicitation requirements; and (2) the protester was not entitled to reimbursement of its protest costs, since the cancellation rendered the protest academic. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
