A firm protested a Navy contract award for chain link fencing repair, replacement, and installation, contending that: (1) the Navy inadequately advertised the solicitation; and (2) the sole bid received was unreasonably priced. GAO held that the Navy properly: (1) advertised the solicitation, since it announced its intention to issue a competitive solicitation in the Commerce Business Daily, and placed the announcement on the bulletin board outside of the local contracts office; and (2) determined that the awardee's bid was reasonably priced based on a comparison with the government's estimate. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
