A firm protested an Army contract award, contending that the awardee: (1) violated the regulation prohibiting the use of foreign-built dredges in the United States; and (2) would no longer qualify as a small business since it used equipment owned by a large firm. GAO determined that: (1) the contention that the awardee possibly violated the regulation forbidding the use of foreign equipment was a matter for consideration by the Maritime Administration; and (2) the allegation that the awardee would no longer be eligible as a small business was a matter of contract administration and the procuring agency's responsibility. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
