A firm protested a Navy contract award, contending that: (1) its drawings of the required items were proprietary; and (2) no other firm could provide the required items. GAO held that it would not review the awardee's ability to perform the contract, since there was no evidence that the Navy acted fraudulently or in bad faith in determining the awardee's responsibility or that definitive responsibility criteria were misapplied. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
