A firm protested a Department of the Interior contract award for campground construction, contending that: (1) the awardee's bid was nonresponsive, since it did not complete a total bid for its line items; and (2) Interior's totalling of the awardee's bid gave it a competitive advantage over other bidders who took the time to include a total bid figure. GAO held that: (1) the awardee's failure to enter a total on its bid schedule was a clerical omission which did not render the bid nonresponsive; and (2) any conceivable advantage the awardee may have gained by failing to add the item prices was too speculative to warrant the rejection of a low, responsive bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
