A firm protested an Air Force contract award for advanced radar warning receivers, contending that the Air Force improperly disclosed source-selection-sensitive information to the awardee. The Air Force contended that the protester failed to show that the: (1) disclosed information was sensitive; (2) Air Force was responsible for the information disclosure; and (3) information disclosure prejudiced the protester. GAO held that an affidavit filed in support of a federal investigation into irregular procurement practices clearly showed that the awardee improperly obtained the sensitive information. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that the Air Force: (1) terminate the awardee's contract; (2) determine how it could procure its requirements and ensure the integrity of the competitive process; and (3) reimburse the protester for its protest costs.
