A firm protested an Army solicitation for roof recoating projects, contending that the brand name specifications unduly restricted competition. GAO held that the protester, a materials manufacturer, was not: (1) a prospective bidder for the construction services contract; and (2) sufficiently interested to protest the solicitation, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest was sustained. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
