A firm protested a contract award by the Defense Logistics Agency, complaining about the awardee's intention to meet contract requirements. A firm's intention to comply with contract requirements is a matter of responsibility, and GAO does not review affirmative determinations of responsibility absent limited circumstances not present here. Further, the protest was filed more than 10 days after initial adverse agency action, making it untimely and not for GAO consideration. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
