INC.: FURTHER REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR PREVIOUS CORRESPONDENCE RELATIVE TO YOUR PROTEST AGAINST THE REJECTION OF YOUR BIDS BY THE DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE. YOUR PROTEST WAS CALLED TO THE ATTENTION OF THE SECRETARY OF THE AIR FORCE WITH THE REQUEST THAT A COMPLETE REPORT BE FURNISHED THEREON. IS TO THE EFFECT THAT. DUE TO THE DEPARTMENT'S EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR COMPANY UNDER PRIOR CONTRACTS IT WAS ADMINISTRATIVELY DETERMINED THAT YOU WERE NOT A RESPONSIBLE BIDDER. SUCH CONCLUSION WAS BASED UPON THE REPORTED FACTS THAT YOUR COMPANY IS NOT A MANUFACTURER. IS A BROKER AND JOBBER IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORDS. THAT THERE WAS A COMPLETE LACK OF MANAGEMENT OF EXISTING CONTRACTS. THAT THERE WAS NO RESPONSIBLE HEAD ADMINISTERING CONTRACTS BETWEEN YOU AND THE DEPARTMENT.
