A firm protested a Navy contract award, contending that the Navy: (1) improperly rejected its low bid; and (2) should not have made award to another small business contractor, since no small business could meet the solicitation's testing requirements. GAO held that: (1) it would not review affirmative responsibility determination, since the protester could not provide evidence of fraud or bad faith; and (2) the Navy properly rejected the protester's bid, since it took exception to the solicitation's testing requirement. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
