Protester contended that the Army, awarded a new contract rather than continuing an existing contract, attempted to exclude protester from competition, and precluded effective competition by providing vague specifications. GAO would not decide on appropriateness of award of a new contract. The contention that protester was excluded from competition was not sustained. Bidders were not precluded from bidding on a common basis. Protest was denied. (DJM)
