THE PROPOSAL RECOGNIZES THAT THE ISSUES INVOLVED ARE COMPLEX AND SUBJECT TO RESOLUTION ONLY AFTER THOROUGH EXAMINATION AND STUDY. THE GAO HAS BEEN RESOLVING BID PROTESTS CONCERNING EXECUTIVE BRANCH AGENCY PROCUREMENTS FOR MANY YEARS AND WE OBVIOUSLY HAVE STRONG INTEREST AND CONCERN WITH REGARD TO PLANS AFFECTING THIS FUNCTION.
