A firm protested a proposed Army sole-source contract award that was made on behalf of a foreign government, contending that: (1) regulations only permit sole-source procurements if the contracting agency is to be reimbursed by the foreign government, which was not the case here; (2) the foreign government did not request that the item be procured from one firm; and (3) questionable circumstances surrounded the proposed awardee. GAO held that: (1) the Army adhered to applicable regulations which ensured that reimbursement would be made; (2) the Army acted in accordance with the foreign government's stated wishes to procure from a selected source; and (3) since the procurement was made on behalf of a foreign government, only questionable procurement violations by the Army would be considered. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
