A firm protested an Army contract award, contending that the: (1) Army should have rejected the awardee's bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge a solicitation amendment; (2) awardee was not a regular dealer or manufacturer; and (3) solicitation specifications were ambiguous. GAO held that: (1) the Army properly accepted the awardee's bid; (2) the Army properly waived the awardee's failure to acknowledge an immaterial solicitation amendment as a minor informality; (3) it would not consider the awardee's legal status as a manufacturer, since it was a matter of responsibility; and (4) protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest regarding alleged solicitation defects. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
