DIGEST Where an agency's implementation of the recommendation in a prior decision is protested. General Accounting Office will not recommend that the agency pay the protester's costs of pursuing the protest. That protest was dismissed after the agency promptly determined that corrective action was appropriate. Our Office sustained the protest on the basis that the agency's evaluation was materially defective under every evaluation factor. As was the source selection decision. Complaining that the terms were unduly restrictive of competition. The agency notified our Office that it was taking corrective action by further amending the solicitation to address and resolve the protester's objections.
