A firm protested the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) rejection of its bid and subsequent contract award for plastic fencing, contending that BLM improperly rejected its bid as nonresponsive because it failed to certify that all end-use items would be manufactured by a domestic small business. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to show any legal or factual errors that would warrant reversal or modification of the original decision; and (2) was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
