The protester contended that the awardee's bid was nonresponsive to the solicitation requirement that certain work be performed by a specialist. By listing itself or another firm for each category of work specified on the subcontractor listing form, the bidder submitted a responsive bid. The question of whether the subcontractor qualified as a specialist was a matter of affirmative determination of subcontractor responsibility not reviewed by GAO.
