[Protest of Proposed Army Contract Award for Software]
B-229594: Mar 2, 1988
- Full Report:
A firm protested a proposed noncompetitive Army contract award to another firm for software, contending that: (1) its software met the Army's needs; and (2) the Army should have included a brand-name-or-equal clause in the solicitation. GAO held that the award was proper, since the: (1) Army determined that the awardee was the only source of the required software; and (2) protester failed to respond to the Army's request that it submit a proposal. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
