A firm protested a Defense Supply Service (DSS) contract award for photocopier maintenance services, contending that DSS: (1) should have rejected the awardee's low bid as nonresponsive because it was mathematically and materially unbalanced; and (2) failed to notify bidders that it had provided a response to the awardee's oral question, showing bias in the awardee's favor. GAO held that the protester failed to show that: (1) the awardee's bid was unbalanced; and (2) DSS reiteration of information contained in the solicitation harmed other bidders. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
