MCI WorldCom Deutschland GmbH protests the terms of numerous solicitations issued by the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO)--Europe, Defense Information Systems Agency, for telecommunication circuits between various United States military installations located in European nations that are members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The protester argues that a standard provision included in the solicitations, requiring that contractors be accredited by the National Long Lines Agency (NALLA) of the NATO nation or nations where the military installations are located, is unduly restrictive of competition.
We deny the protest.
