A firm protested an Air Force contract award for avionics testers, contending that the Air Force improperly determined that the: (1) awardee could provide the needed items without excessive costs or delays; and (2) statutory authority for limiting competition to only one source was not acceptable, since the awardee was not a follow-on contractor. GAO held that the Air Force properly awarded a sole-source contract, since award to another source would likely result in duplicate costs that would not be recovered through competition. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
