A firm protested the Army's intended sole-source contract award to another firm for helicopter fuel tanks, contending that it was equally qualified to produce the tanks. GAO held that the protest was premature because the Army had not prepared a written justification for the sole-source procurement. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
