A firm protested a Department of Energy prime contractor's seven solicitations for monitoring system components, contending that the contractor improperly procured its requirements on a component instead of a system integration basis. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protests more than 10 working days after initial adverse action to its agency-level protests; and (2) prime contractor reasonably determined that only the brand-name specifications would meet its minimum needs. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed in part and denied in part.
