A firm requested reinstatement of its withdrawn protest of a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) delivery order for computer maintenance, contending that FAA failed to honor a settlement agreement to procure the services competitively. GAO held that: (1) FAA did not violate the agreement, since the Army, the requiring activity, included the maintenance requirement in a solicitation it issued; (2) the protester had the opportunity to compete for the Army's contract; and (3) there was no basis for reinstating the original protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
