Two firms protested a General Services Administration (GSA) solicitation for janitorial services, contending that: (1) GSA should not have been allowed to impose bonding requirements on the prospective bidders, since the requirements restricted competition and were unfair to small businesses; (2) GSA improperly imposed the bonding requirements in lieu of performing a preaward survey; and (3) the bonding requirements were unnecessary. GAO held that: (1) GSA reasonably determined that the bonding requirements were necessary to ensure continuous service and to prevent government losses or contractor default; and (2) the protesters failed to provide sufficient evidence that the bonding requirements were improper or unduly restrictive of competition. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
