A firm requested reimbursement for its protests costs pursuant to an Air Force contract award for test equipment maintenance and calibration services, contending that the: (1) Air Force's evaluation scheme was flawed; and (2) Air Force unduly delayed taking corrective action in response to its protest. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) properly amended the solicitation after determining that the original evaluation scheme was flawed; and (2) did not unduly delay taking action in response to the protester's protest. Accordingly, the request for reimbursement was denied.
