A firm protested a contract award to another firm under an Army solicitation, contending that: (1) the Army was aware that it was a potential bidder but did not provide it with a copy of the solicitation; and (2) the awardee was bankrupt and might not be able to perform the contract. GAO held that: (1) there was no indication that the Army deliberately attempted to exclude the protester from competition; and (2) the matter of whether the awardee could perform the contract was one of bidder responsibility, which it would not consider absent circumstances not relevant to the instant procurement. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
