A firm protested an Air Force contract award for duct supports, contending that the: (1) Air Force improperly used noncompetitive procedures, since it could have provided the duct supports; (2) noncompetitive award resulted from the absence of advance procurement planning; and (3) Air Force failed to synopsize the solicitation in the Commerce Business Daily. GAO held that: (1) the protester had failed to deliver a sufficient quantity of usable duct supports under its contract with the Air Force; (2) the Air Force reasonably justified the sole-source award; and (3) the solicitation did not need to be synopsized, since the Air Force reasonably determined that its requirement was urgent. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
