A firm protested an Army contract award to another firm for signal cartridges, contending that the Army: (1) did not justify a requirement for first-article testing; (2) improperly rejected its offer to correct its bid errors; and (3) should have waived first-article testing for it, since it had produced the required equipment under a prior contract. GAO held that the: (1) Army's determination not to waive the testing requirement was reasonable, since the protester had subcontracted the work under the prior contract; and (2) Army properly awarded the contract to the low offerer. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
