A firm protested the modifications of Navy delivery and purchase orders for red oak sleeping room furniture, contending that the modifications were beyond the scope of the orders. GAO held that the modifications materially changed the nature of the orders from those originally issued and thereby prejudiced the protester. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that the Navy reimburse the protester for its protest costs.
