Protest Questioning Responsibility of Successful Offeror
B-186881: Sep 16, 1976
- Full Report:
The protester objected to the award of a contract, alleging that the contractor was not capable of performing the contract work and that the contractor was not eligible for award. The contention that the contractor was not capable of performance of the work was a matter of responsibility and was not reviewed since there was no allegation of fraud. Whether or not a bidder possessed the required licenses needed to perform the contract work was a matter of responsibility which could be resolved by the bidder after bid opening. The contention that the bidder was ineligible for a small business set-aside award was without merit since the bidder had been determined to be a small business by the Small Business Administration.
