A firm protested the Army's exclusion of its bids for interactive courseware from the competitive range, contending that the Army acted arbitrarily and unreasonably, since the bids contained only minor, easily correctable defects. GAO held that the: (1) protester failed to show that the Army's evaluation of its technical proposals was unreasonable; and (2) protester's bids and required samples contained serious deficiencies which rendered them technically unacceptable. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
