A firm protested an Army contract award to another firm for a heating system, contending that: (1) since it was the only manufacturer who could provide the required system, the awardee lacked the technical expertise to adequately perform the contract; and (2) the Army did not conduct adequate discussions with it. GAO held that: (1) the Army properly determined that the awardee's proposal was technically acceptable; (2) it would not question the Army's determination that the awardee was responsible; (3) it would not consider the awardee's compliance with the contract terms, since that was a matter of contract administration; and (4) the Army properly declined to hold discussions, since the protester's proposal was technically acceptable. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
