A firm protested a U.S. Property and Fiscal Office (USPFO) contract award for computer hardware maintenance services, contending that: (1) USPFO should have used full and open competitive procedures rather than a General Services Administration (GSA) contract to acquire the services; (2) USPFO conducted an improper cost analysis; and (3) the GSA contract did not meet USPFO requirements. GAO held that: (1) the GSA contract was awarded under competitive contracting procedures; (2) USPFO was authorized to consider whether the GSA contract could meet its needs and was in the government's best interest; (3) USPFO reasonably determined that the GSA contract would meet its needs at a lower cost, since the two offers it received in response to the solicitation exceeded its estimated cost for the services; (4) USPFO reasonably cancelled the solicitation and the existing software maintenance services contract and acquired the services from GSA; and (5) USPFO conducted a reasonable cost analysis. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
