A firm protested the Navy's determination that it was not a responsible bidder and its subsequent referral of that decision to the Small Business Administration. GAO held that it would not review the nonresponsibility determination, since the protester failed to avail itself of the certificate of competency process established for small businesses. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
