General Accounting Office review of an agency's technical evaluation is limited to ensuring that the evaluation is fair. Allegation that awardee will violate another firm's patents in performing a contract is dismissed because the matter is for consideration by the courts. Contracting officer's determination that awardee is a responsible contractor will only be disturbed upon a showing that the contracting officer acted in bad faith or failed to properly apply definitive responsibility criteria in the request for proposals. That the awardee is not capable of performing the contract successfully. Offerors were required to submit technical literature with their proposals to show that their systems conformed to the specifications.
