A firm protested the Defense Industrial Supply Center's determination that it was nonresponsible under three solicitations. The agency had referred its nonresponsibility determinations to the Small Business Administration (SBA) for possible issuance of Certificates of Competency which SBA refused to issue. The protester alleged that SBA acted on erroneous agency information that it was not a regular dealer under the Walsh-Healey Act. GAO found that the record failed to support the allegation and the protester failed to state a valid basis for the protests. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.
