A firm protested a contract award to another firm under an Army solicitation, contending that the awardee: (1) had never produced the required item; and (2) submitted a below-cost bid. GAO held that: (1) the matter of whether the awardee could produce the required item was one of bidder responsibility, which GAO will not review absent circumstances not relevant to the instant protest; and (2) the submission of a below-cost bid is not illegal. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
