A firm protested an Army contract award for hardware kits, contending that: (1) the awardee was not a qualified manufacturer or dealer; (2) the awardee was not a small business; (3) the solicitation specifications gave the awardee an unfair competitive advantage; and (4) its bid was improperly disclosed to the awardee. GAO held that: (1) it would not review the awardee's status as a regular dealer or manufacturer, since the Army already made its determination; (2) it would not review the awardee's status as a small business; (3) the protester untimely protested the solicitation specifications after bid opening; and (4) it would not review the protester's allegation that its bid was improperly disclosed to the awardee, since it was based on speculation. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
