[Protest of Navy Solicitation for Modification Management Support Services]
B-270672: Apr 8, 1996
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Navy solicitation for aircraft modification management support services, contending that the: (1) solicitation's personnel experience requirements unduly restricted competition; (2) Navy should have been required to supply the successful bidder with certain software; and (3) Navy deliberately constructed the procurement to limit competition. GAO held that the: (1) Navy reasonably determined that the solicitation's personnel experience requirements were needed to meet its minimum needs; (2) Navy was not required to furnish the software, since it was not necessary for the successful performance of the contract; and (3) protester did not present any evidence that the Navy deliberately limited competition. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
