A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid and subsequent contract award for pneumatic tire changers, contending that the Army improperly rejected its bid as nonresponsive. GAO held that the Army properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since the protester failed to submit evidence that its proposed alternative product met the solicitation's brand name or equal requirements. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
