An academic institution protested an Army solicitation for courses, contending that the solicitation requirement that the awardee possess post-secondary accreditation was unduly restrictive. GAO held that the: (1) solicitation required that college credit be given for successful course completion; and (2) protester failed to show that the accreditation requirement was not reasonably related to the Army's needs. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
