A firm protested an Air Force solicitation for aircraft overhaul and repair services, contending that: the Air Force should have applied the Buy American Act (BAA) to this procurement, since the procurement was ultimately for supplies, and not services alone. GAO held that: (1) repair and overhaul contracts are basically agreements for services which are outside the scope of BAA; and (2) the Air Force properly determined that no BAA factor should be included in the price evaluation. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
