B-291185: Nov 8, 2002
Protest that the minimum order quantity is inadequate is denied. Where the guaranteed minimum amount is sufficient to support a binding contract and reflects the minimum amount the agency is fairly certain to order from each contractor. 2. Violates FAR Sec. 47.207-6(b) because the solicitation specifies unit pricing that offerors must use for "accessorial services" is denied. Because the agency is not required to apply the requirements in FAR Sec. 47.207-6(b) in a commercial item acquisition. 3. Protest objecting to solicitation requiring that certain accessorial services be provided at no additional charge and that the costs for these services be factored into offerors' line-haul rates is denied where the protesters did not show that the solicitation's allocation of cost risk to the contractors was unreasonable.
