A firm protested any Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) contract award for elevator maintenance, contending that: (1) VA improperly failed to provide it with a copy of the solicitation; (2) VA improperly determined that the only responsive bid was reasonable; (3) it qualified as the incumbent contractor, since it performed the required services as a subcontractor; (4) the awardee lacked appropriate experience to perform the contract; and (5) the awardee could not comply with the contract's requirements. GAO held that: (1) VA was not required to solicit the protester, which had never had a prime contract with VA for the required services; (2) VA did not deliberately exclude the protester from competition; (3) VA properly determined that the sole responsive bid was reasonable; and (4) it would not consider allegations regarding the awardee's experience or compliance, which concerned responsibility and contract administration. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
