A company protested the General Services Administration's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive and the agency's cancellation of its original invitation of bids (IFB) for laundry soap. The resolicitation was issued because a new specification for soap had been developed and approved for use. The original IFB contained a "moisture adjustment payment clause" which no longer adequately reflected the agency's needs. Reasonable basis existed to cancel the IFB. The protest is denied.
