A firm protested several Army contract awards for mine detection research, contending that: (1) the Army failed to provide it with complete information on the awardees' proposals; (2) the awardees' prices were extremely low; and (3) a requirement for mine detection experience restricted competition. GAO held that: (1) the Army had the responsibility to determine what information it should disclose under the Freedom of Information Act; and (2) the protester untimely filed its protests against alleged solicitation defects and the awardees' bid prices. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.
