In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Defense Logistics Agency's (DLA) procedures in evaluating a firm's performance and that of its competitors to determine whether: (1) the rules DLA used to judge the firm tardy in its delivery schedules were sensible; and (2) DLA applied the same rules to all the competitors.

GAO found that: (1) DLA treated the protester and its competitors equitably during the contract award process; (2) the process DLA followed to identify and select a responsible contractor was reasonable and consistent with applicable regulations; and (3) DLA properly allowed its contracting officers to use data from other DLA components along with their own knowledge. GAO believes that the regulations are sensible, although a contracting agency could unfairly apply or deliberately misuse the regulations in any judgment situation.
