A company protested a contract awarded by the Navy on two grounds: (1) the awardee's bids for terrazzo and tile were grossly below the historical average for the same type of work and could not be accomplished as per specification, and (2) the awardee had an unfair competitive advantage resulting from numerous Navy extensions of the company's deck covering requirements contract. GAO determined that the protester's first ground of protest was essentially a protest against buying-in, which is not a proper ground for protest. The protester's second contention regarding extensions of the previous contract was an unsupported allegation which failed to show how the extensions were prejudicial to current bidders. Accordingly, GAO denied the protest.
