A firm protested the Army's resolicitation for telephone cable and related supplies, contending that the Army: (1) improperly resolicited its remaining requirements after terminating the awardee's contract; (2) should have made award to it, since it was the low bidder; and (3) should reimburse it for its original protest costs. GAO held that the: (1) Army reasonably resolicited its requirements, since the original solicitation did not state its actual needs or provide an equal basis of competition for the bidders; (2) Army reasonably determined that the awardee's bid was responsive, since the awardee did not indicate it was offering anything other than the brand name product; and (3) protester was not entitled to reimbursement of its protest costs, since the Army took prompt corrective action in terminating the contract. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
