A firm protested a Defense Electronics Supply Center (DESC) contract award for battery cap assemblies, contending that DESC: (1) potentially disclosed its bid price to competitors; and (2) failed to notify it of the contract award. GAO held that: (1) there was no evidence that DESC disclosed the protester's bid price when it issued the second solicitation; (2) even if the protester's bid price had been disclosed, the protester would not have been underbid; and (3) DESC alleged failure to notify the protester of the contract award was a procedural deficiency which did not affect the otherwise valid contract. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
