Invitation for bids (IFB) DACW61-74-B-0085 was issued on March 12, 1974, by the Department of the Army, United States Army Engineer District, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Army) for maintenance dredging in the Federal navigation project in the Indian River Inlet, Bay and Waterway from Indian River Inlet to Rehobeth Bay. At bid opening on March 28, 1974, only on bidder, Barnegat Bay Dredging Co. Incorporated (Barnegat), submitted a bid. The IFB provided for a 60-day bid acceptance period which would expire on May 27, 1974. However, no award was made during this period and the IFB was canceled. By letter dated May 24, 1974, to the contracting officer Barnegat, after receiving indications from contracting officials that the IFB might be canceled, had requested that award be made. We construe this letter to be a protest to the contracting agency against a possible IFB cancellation.

We find no legal objection to the contracting officer's decision to cancel the IFB, and, the protest is denied.
