A firm protested an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) contract award for accounting and tax law training software, contending that IRS improperly refused to consider clarifying information pertaining to its proposal that it furnished after the solicitation closing date. GAO held that IRS properly determined, given the information it received prior to the closing date of the solicitation, that the protester did not meet the technical needs of IRS. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
