A firm protested a Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) contract award for an information analysis center, contending that: (1) DISA misled it into believing it would receive award on a sole-source basis; (2) DISA should have awarded it the contract, since it was uniquely qualified to perform the follow-on work; and (3) it should be reimbursed for its lost profits on the anticipated contract and its bid and protest preparation costs. GAO held that: (1) it would not consider protests advocating sole-source procurements, since its bid protest function was to ensure full and open competition for government contracts; and (2) the protester was not entitled to reimbursement for any of its costs, since there was no legal basis for such reimbursement. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
