A firm protested the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) rejection of its bid for an electron microscope, contending that NASA improperly evaluated: (1) its bid and found it technically unacceptable; and (2) the awardee's responsibility. GAO held that: (1) NASA properly rejected the protester's bid as technically unacceptable; (2) the protester failed to provide any evidence to support its allegation that the technical evaluation was improper; and (3) the protest against the awardee's responsibility concerned a matter which it would not consider. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
