A firm protested the Department of Transportation's (DOT) rejection of its bid for automatic data processing tape storage, contending that DOT improperly: (1) evaluated the bidders' costs; and (2) determined that its bid was nonresponsive, since its certificate of technical requirements did not include an original signature. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to provide any evidence that DOT miscalculated its bid price; and (2) was not sufficiently interested to protest, since it was not the low bidder and would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
