A firm protested the Army's cancellation of a solicitation for audiovisual support that the Army issued as part of a cost comparison to determine whether to contract for the required services. The Army cancelled the solicitation after it determined that the specifications did not meet its actual requirements in various respects. The protester contended that: (1) the Army should have reopened negotiations with the two acceptable offerers; and (2) the Army should contract for certain of the added services separately. GAO held that the Army reasonably determined that: (1) certain deficiencies in the solicitation prevented bidders from submitting offers on an equal basis; and (2) it should acquire the additional services under the instant procurement. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
