Protest that minimum guaranteed quantity of 100 horses/burros for life of contract is insufficient consideration to bind parties is denied where nature of acquisition dictates possibility that government may order only this quantity. Solicitation will not result in impermissible personal services contract where under contract government will not exercise continuous supervision and control over contractor personnel performing the contract. Carr's contends that the solicitation is defective for a variety of reasons. The contractor is to provide assistance to BLM in conducting satellite adoptions. These satellite adoptions (including travel and set-up) will be 2- to 6-day events at various locations in the eastern United States.
