GAO has ruled that an agency’s failure to document contractor performance and to provide it for use in source selection is sufficient basis to sustain a protest against the agency’s contract award for the same services. It is reasonable to assume that this decision is applicable to procurements of similar services, rather than strictly the same service, and to procurements of commodities when similar commodities have been previously procured, to the same end.
