Two firms protested a Department of Energy (DOE) subcontract solicitation for supply store operations. One protester contended that the prime contractor improperly reopened the procurement and amended the solicitation after receiving best-and-final offers (BAFO). The second protester contended that the prime contractor improperly engaged in post-BAFO discussions with the first protester. GAO held that the: (1) first protester was not prejudiced by the reopening of the procurement; (2) solicitation amendment did not favor the incumbent contractor; and (3) prime contractor properly amended the solicitation and requested new BAFO. Accordingly, the protests were denied in part and dismissed in part.
