A firm protested a Veterans Administration (VA) contract award for patient transportation services to another firm, contending that: (1) VA improperly awarded the contract, since the awardee did not possess the requisite state operating authority; and (2) GAO should hold a conference to discuss the matter. GAO held that: (1) VA properly awarded the contract to the awardee without determining whether it had the appropriate state or local operating authority, since the solicitation specifications did not impose a specific licensing requirement; and (2) it would not hold a conference, since the protest was without legal merit and a conference would serve no useful purpose. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
