Because that's how our system works. We list mandatory and recommended specs/ abilities and the companies get to pick what they think will win the contract. We can't write the SOR for what we want/need, it has to be broad enough to let other companies bid. We could always go sole source, but that requires a boatload of justification for $200 radio antennas, I can't imagine what it would take for TB to approve a multi billion sole source purchase.
