[Protest of DOD Rejection of Bid for Armed Guard Services]
B-261018: Aug 9, 1995
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Department of Defense's (DOD) exclusion of its bid for armed guard services, contending that DOD improperly failed to provide it with a copy of the solicitation amendment. GAO held that: (1) there was no evidence that DOD deliberately attempted to preclude the protester from bidding the contract; and (2) the protester did not avail itself of every reasonable opportunity to obtain the amendment. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
