A firm protested an Air Force delivery order for specifications development, contending that the Air Force unfairly used the existing contractor to avoid full and open competition. GAO held that the Air Force properly placed the delivery order, since: (1) it unsuccessfully attempted to reduce contract costs under its original separate solicitation; and (2) the delivery order was within the scope of the existing contract. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
