Two firms protested an Army contract award for the construction, leaseback to the government, operation, and maintenance of military family housing, contending that the awardee's development plan did not comply with: (1) the zoning requirements; (2) city construction guidelines; (3) uniform building codes; (4) design and construction criteria; and (5) solicitation boundary limits. GAO held that the protests concerning: (1) building setback and street construction were timely filed; (2) zoning restrictions and design construction criteria were insufficient, and the protesters failed to show that the Army acted unreasonably; (3) compliance with building codes were unfounded; and (4) compliance with development boundaries were without merit. Accordingly, the protests were denied in part and dismissed in part.
