Two firms protested an Air Force contract award for litigation support services, contending that the Air Force improperly relied upon the expert exception to full and open competition to justify its sole-source acquisition. GAO held that the Air Force reasonably justified its use of a sole source acquisition, since there was only one source capable of meeting its needs. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
