This letter responds to the requirements of the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984, 31 U.S.C. 3554(e)(2) (2000), that the Comptroller General report to Congress each instance in which a federal agency did not fully implement a recommendation made by our Office in connection with a bid protest decided the prior fiscal year. Although there were no such occurrences with respect to our fiscal year 2001 recommendations, we are reporting an instance related to a fiscal year 2000 decision, where it only became apparent in fiscal year 2001 that the agency was not promptly implementing our recommendation.
