A firm protested a Government Printing Office (GPO) contract award for the production and distribution of saddle-wire stitched pamphlets, contending that: (1) GPO incorrectly calculated certain travel costs used in determining the low bid; and (2) there was an impropriety in the solicitation regarding press inspections. GAO held that: (1) GPO correctly based its calculation of travel costs on its need for two separate vehicles, since the inspectors may travel from and return to different locations; and (2) the protester untimely filed its protest of the alleged impropriety after bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
