A firm protested the award of a contract to the low bidder under a small business set-aside contending that the awardee was not a small business, and thus was ineligible for the award. GAO would not consider the protest as the Small Business Administration is empowered to conclusively determine the small business size status of a bidder. The protest was dismissed.
