A firm protested the Defense Construction Supply Center's (DCSC) rejection of its low bid for doors as nonresponsive, contending that DCSC should have waived its failure to acknowledge a solicitation amendment, since it received the amendment after bid opening. GAO held that: (1) DCSC properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge a material amendment; and (2) the protester did not provide any evidence that DCSC deliberately excluded it from competition. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
