A firm protested a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) lease award for clinic space, contending that: (1) the lump sum payment for medical equipment would result in an improper advance payment; and (2) VA should have rejected the awardee's bid, since it failed to meet certain solicitation specifications. GAO held that: (1) VA reasonably determined that the awardee's bid met all the solicitation specifications; (2) the issue of the lump sum payment was academic, since the awardee's bid would have remained low under either pricing approach; and (3) VA properly made award to the most advantageous bidder. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
