A firm protested a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) contract award, contending that HHS should have applied a 10-percent evaluation preference to its bid, since it was a small disadvantaged business (SDB). GAO held that the: (1) solicitation had no provision for the application of a SDB preference; and (2) protester had no valid basis of protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
