A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract award, asserting that although it was the low bidder for certain items under the solicitation DLA rejected its bid because it believed the protester did not qualify as a regular dealer under the Walsh-Healey Act. GAO stated that questions of whether a bidder is a manufacturer or regular dealer under the act must be determined by the contracting agency and are subject to review by the Department of Labor and the Small Business Administration (SBA). Because DLA had referred the question to SBA, GAO could not consider the matter. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
