A firm protested the Navy's rejection of its bid for heater replacement and installation, contending that the Navy improperly determined that it was not responsible. GAO held that it would not review the nonresponsibility determination, since the protester unsuccessfully availed itself of the Small Business Administration's (SBA) certificate-of-competency (COC) procedures and did not allege that SBA acted fraudulently or in bad faith in considering its COC application. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
