Two firms protested a Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) contract award for aircraft maintenance services. GAO held that the protests were academic, since NAVAIR terminated the contract and intended to review the procurement in response to the protests. One protester contended that: (1) NAVAIR improperly evaluated its bid; and (2) its protest was not rendered academic by contract termination. GAO held that the protesters anticipated improper action that had not taken place. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.
