A firm protested an Air Force contract award to another firm for refuse services, contending that the Air Force improperly corrected the awardee's proposed price. GAO held that the: (1) Air Force properly determined that the error was correctable, since it was a clerical error apparent on the face of the bid; and (2) protester's argument that the Army rejected its bid for the same type of error in a different contract was irrelevant. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
