A firm protested the award of a contract alleging that the awardee's bid was excessive and questioning the awardee's ability to perform the contract work. GAO would not consider the protest because the protester had not submitted a bid and could not argue that it had a substantial economic interest in the outcome of the procurement. The protest was dismissed.
