A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid, contending that the Army improperly determined that its bid was nonresponsive. GAO held that: (1) the protest was academic, since the Army reversed its nonresponsibility determination; and (2) it would not consider the protester's challenge to the awardee's small business status, since the matter was not within its jurisdictional authority. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
