A firm protested an Air Force contract award, contending that the awardee was ineligible for contract award, since its owner was a federal employee. GAO held that the owner was: (1) employed by a federally funded laboratory, but was not considered a federal employee; and (2) not prohibited from receiving the contract. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
