Protester objected to the decision of the General Services Administration to use conventional negotiation techniques to procure janitorial services under four separate small business set-aside solicitations. The use of negotiation procedures under the questioned procurements was lawful and not in violation of a prior GAO decision. The regulation requiring the use of formal advertising procedures under small business set-aside procurements was waived. The statute concerning the negotiating authority contains no indication of any limit on the negotiation procedures that can be used in such procurements.
