A firm protested an Army delivery order under a federal supply schedule contract for duplicating equipment, contending that: (1) its product was equal to and lower-priced than the awardee's; and (2) the solicitation's requirements exceeded the Army's minimum needs and were restrictive of competition. GAO held that the: (1) solicitation requirements reflected the Army's actual needs; and (2) protester's product did not possess certain features essential to meet those needs. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
