A firm protested the Bonneville Power Administration's (BPA) rejection of its bid as nonresponsive. The Bonneville Dam Project Act affords the BPA Administrator extensive discretionary authority to conduct BPA contractual affairs as he deems appropriate to promote BPA interests. GAO has found that it cannot take any effective remedial action with respect to BPA procurement actions and, therefore, has consistently declined to review protests of BPA procurements. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
