A firm protested an Army contract award, contending that the specifications used were defective and could only be met with the use of one product. Because the protester was a potential subcontractor-supplier instead of a prospective bidder and the subcontract was not by or for the government, GAO found that it was not an interested party as defined by the Competition in Contracting Act. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
