A firm protested the Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) rejection of its bid for sirens as nonresponsive, contending that: (1) TVA should not have considered its limited warranty as part of its bid, since it included a provision extending the warranty period beyond the solicitation requirements; and (2) the specifications improperly favored the awardee, since the awardee helped draft them. GAO held that: (1) TVA properly rejected the protester's bid, since its limited warranty did not meet all of the specification requirements, even with the extended time provision; and (2) the protester untimely filed its allegation concerning an apparent solicitation defect. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
