A firm protested the procedures used by the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) in awarding several cooperative agreements, contending that MBDA did not allow adequate response time in the solicitation. GAO held that it would not consider the protest because it does not review protests concerning cooperative agreements absent circumstances not relevant to the instant procurement. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
