A firm protested a proposed General Services Administration (GSA) contract award for the lease of office space, contending that: (1) the proposed awardee's bid did not meet a solicitation requirement for access to two-way transit bus service; and (2) it could offer, at a lower price, a building with access to one-way service. GAO held that the: (1) proposed awardee's building had access to one-way service only; and (2) protester reasonably interpreted the solicitation as requiring access to two-way service. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that GSA: (1) permit the protester to submit an offer; (2) evaluate the offer on the same basis as the proposed awardee's; and (3) award the contract to the protester, if appropriate.
