A firm protested a loan recipient's contractor selection under the Farmers Home Administration's (FmHA) Rural Housing Loan Program. GAO held that it did not have jurisdiction to consider the protest, since: (1) the matter did not involve a solicitation or contract award by a federal agency; and (2) FmHA did not request that it review the transaction. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
