A firm protested an Army contract award for maintenance of government housing units, contending that the awardee should have been found nonresponsible because it: (1) failed to visit the housing units, as required by the solicitation; and (2) may not have obtained all the necessary German licenses at the time it submitted its offer. GAO held that: (1) failure to visit a site did not automatically disqualify a vendor from consideration; and (2) it was not necessary for the awardee to have all necessary licenses prior to award. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
