Four firms protested Air Force solicitations for runway restriping, contending that the Air Force: (1) unreasonably solicited the services on a single-award basis; and (2) unduly restricted competition by requiring regional contracts for the services. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) reasonably required single awards to reduce scheduling difficulties; and (2) did not justify combining the services under regional contracts. Accordingly, the protests were sustained in part and denied in part, and GAO recommended that the Air Force: (1) review its needs and revise its solicitations; (2) cancel those solicitations affected by the new solicitation requirements; and (3) reimburse the protesters for their protest costs.
