A firm protested the award of a Navy contract for an energy monitoring and control system. The protester, who appeared to be a potential supplier to several disappointed bidders, principally contended that the Navy improperly rejected as nonresponsive seven bids that were priced lower than the awardee's. Bid protest procedures require that a party must be sufficiently interested before GAO will consider its protest allegations. In this case, it was the disappointed bidders and not the protester who had a direct interest in the outcome of this protest. Thus, GAO would not consider the protest because the firm was not an interested party. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
