A firm protested an Army solicitation for lodging and meals, contending that: (1) a geographic restriction requiring lodging facilities within a one-mile radius unduly restricted competition; and (2) other lodging facilities within the radius might not bid because of the recruits' reputation for unruly behavior. GAO held that: (1) the geographic restriction was necessary to allow the Army to increase its recruit-processing efficiency; (2) there was adequate competition within the restricted area that could meet the Army's needs; and (3) the protester's contention regarding the extent of competition was speculative. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
