A firm protested the General Services Administration's (GSA) cancellation of four solicitations for operations and maintenance services, contending that: (1) GSA improperly cancelled the solicitations after determining that it was nonresponsible; and (2) it deserved award or resolicitation of the procurement, and reimbursement for its bid preparation costs. GAO held that: (1) GSA did not have a reasonable basis for cancelling the solicitations; and (2) the protester was not entitled to reimbursement for its claimed bid preparation costs. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that GSA reimburse the protester for its protest costs.
