A firm protested an Air Force contract award for microcomputer workstations, contending that the awardee failed to comply with several requirements. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) reasonably determined that the awardee's prior experience and its system satisfied its minimum needs; (2) treated both offerors equally; and (3) reasonably determined that the awardee's technically superior, less risky proposal was worth the additional cost. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
