A firm protested an Army contract award for property maintenance and two Army contract awards for flares, contending that the Army: (1) improperly awarded the maintenance contract on a sole source basis; and (2) unreasonably evaluated the awardee's bids for the flares. GAO held that the: (1) Army properly awarded the sole source maintenance contract based on its industrial mobilization needs; (2) Army reasonably evaluated the awardee's bids in accordance with the solicitation's evaluation criteria; and (3) protester untimely filed its protest that the Army improperly accepted the use-evaluation factor added to the awardee's bid. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
