A firm protested a Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) contract award for manufacturing of woven shirting fabric, contending that the awardee did not meet BOP's requirement for similar or relevant contract past performance. GAO held that the awardee met this requirement since the solicitation did not define "similar or relevant" in terms of a dollar value. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
