A firm protested a Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service (DRMS) contract award for hazardous waste removal, contending that: (1) DRMS failed to consider the possibility of making multiple partial awards as the solicitation permitted; and (2) it would have been in line for award for certain items if DRMS had made a partial award to another firm. GAO held that the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since: (1) DRMS eliminated the other firm from the competitive range; (2) partial awards would not cover all of the line items; and (3) it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
