A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract award for sleeve bushings, contending that: (1) its alternative product was technically equivalent to the approved product; and (2) DLA should have accepted its low bid. GAO held that DLA reasonably rejected the protester's bid as technically unacceptable, since the protester failed to provide sufficient evidence to establish the acceptability of its alternate product. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
