A firm protested an Army and Air Force National Guard solicitation for technical support and management services, contending that the procurement was improperly set-aside for small disadvantaged businesses (SDB). GAO held that: (1) the SDB set-aside was proper because it involved separate activities and separate contracting offices; and (2) the National Guard Bureau Contracting Office (NGB-AQC) reasonably determined that it would receive offers from at least two responsible SDB. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
