A company protested that its oral bid under a small business set-aside timber sale should be reduced because of the improper participation of a large business in the bidding. There is no basis for reducing the bid by disregarding the ineligible firm's bid since there was no provision for such reduction in the sale documents. The contract should be awarded to the small business submitting the high bid or the sale should be canceled and resolicited.
