Contractors Must Check Everywhere "Reasonable" On FedBizOpps

October 4, 2005

In Jess Bruner Fire Suppression (GAO Aug. 19, 2005, the agency posted a notice and solicitation under a simplified acquisition for multiple subregions on only one subregion's site within the FedBizOpps web site, rather than on the site of either the whole region or of each of the subregions for which the services were needed, and the protester complained that it did not see the notice because it did not check subregions for which it was not interested. While criticizing the agency's claim that it would have been "cumbersome" to post on multiple sites and noting it would have been very cumbersome for the protester to search regularly by geographical region to find the materials, GAO held that the posting met the minimum legal requirements.
