A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid and partial contract award to another firm for laundry and dry cleaning services, contending that the Army: (1) improperly determined that its bid price was unreasonable; (2) should have awarded it the entire contract; (3) improperly cancelled one section of the solicitation and resolicited the requirements; and (4) failed to include a market survey listing the estimated work load. GAO held that: (1) it would not review the the Army's method for determining price reasonableness, absent evidence of bad faith or fraud; (2) the Army properly rejected the protester's bid since it substantially exceeded the Army's price estimate; (3) the Army properly cancelled and resolicited the contract since the protester submitted the only bid; and (4) the portion of the protest alleging a solicitation impropriety was untimely filed after bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
