Protest Against Agency Refusal To Permit Correction of Alleged Bid Errors

B-185536: Feb 13, 1976

Additional Materials:


Office of Public Affairs
(202) 512-4800

The protester alleged that the agency improperly refused to permit the correction of alleged errors in its low bid which it alleged prior to award. The record indicated several apparent mistakes but did not provide clear and convincing evidence of the intended bid price; rejection of the bid and award to the second low bidder was proper. There was no need for the agency to refer the matter to the Small Business Administration since the case did not involve a determination of nonresponsibility. There was no basis for the award of bid preparation costs or any other form of monetary relief.
