Hendry Corporation protests the award of a contract to RiverHawk Marine, LLC by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Coast Guard under request for quotations No. HSCG80-08-Q-3FAD73 for dry-dock repairs to a Coast Guard cutter. Hendry challenges the agency's determination that RiverHawk is a responsible firm on two grounds. Hendry alleges that three founding members of RiverHawk "do not have a satisfactory record of performance, integrity, and business ethics," Protest at 3, because, during their course of employment at a previous firm, they took action that resulted in the bankruptcy of that company and default on two Coast Guard vessel repair contracts, and because, in violation of a non-compete agreement, they made plans to form RiverHawk while affiliated with that other firm.
We dismiss the protest because, as filed with our Office, it does not establish a basis for our review of the agency's responsibility determination.
