No Constructive Knowledge When Amendment Not Posted to FedBizOpps

August 20, 2015

In Latvian Connection, LLC (Aug. 11, 2015), GAO held that the Army did not provide the protester enough time to respond to a "substantial" solicitation amendment when, although the amendment was posted to the Army Single Face to Industry (AFSI) website six days prior to the response deadline, it was not posted to FedBizOpps.gov and the protester did not see the posting on the AFSI until two days before the deadline. GAO rejected the Army's argument that the protester had constructive knowledge of the AFSI posting, holding that offerors are only charged with constructive knowledge of procurement actions published on a designated, government-wide point of entry, which, for business opportunities greater than $25,000, is only FedBizOpps.gov.
