A firm protested the rejection of its proposal under an Army solicitation for camouflage screen support systems, contending that: (1) its similar proposal under a previous procurement for the same items was accepted by the Army; and (2) the rejection of its proposal under the two-step procurement was unreasonable. The Army rejected the proposal because: (1) while the protester proposed certain additional product tests, it did not address the issue of first-article testing; and (2) the proposal lacked explanatory detail that was required under the solicitation. GAO held that: (1) the Army reasonably determined that the proposal was deficient in the stated areas; and (2) the Army's conduct under prior procurements had no bearing on this procurement. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
