Yes, you are correct that Answer choice (A) is not correct because it simply restates the information in the stimulus.
However, to further clarify and to respond to your question about logically negating Answer Choice (A), the correct logical negation of "an ideal bureaucracy will..." in the answer choice is not "will not." Rather, the correct negation is "an ideal bureaucracy could possibly..."
Recall that the logical negation of something requires you to cover all logical possibilities from 0-100. So if the answer choice states that something will happen, i.e. that it is inevitable or 100%, the logical opposite is the possibility from 0-99 that it could or could not happen.
So if you plug in "an ideal bureaucracy could provide an appeal procedure for complaints even after it has defined and classified all possible problems and set out regulations regarding each eventuality." it does not destroy the argument in the stimulus.
Hop this helps!
