A firm protested 10 Army small business set-aside solicitations for spare parts, contending that: (1) the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) prohibited the use of requirements contracts for noncommercial or noncommercial-type products; and (2) the solicitation provisions placed too much cost risk on the contractors. GAO held that: (1) FAR did not prohibit requirements contracts for items, regardless of whether they were commercial or commercial-type products; and (2) the Army acted properly in determining the probable amount of goods and services and, therefore, in imposing cost risks on the bidders. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
