A firm protested an Army contract award, contending that the Army should have rejected the awardee's bid, since it failed to include proof that it was a member of a certain industry group as the solicitation required. GAO held that the: (1) question of the awardee's membership was a matter of responsibility that could be determined any time prior to award; and (2) Army properly permitted the awardee to submit proof of its certification after bid opening. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
