A firm protested a Veterans Administration contract award for a construction project, contending that the awardee: (1) did not possess a valid state contractor's license; and (2) was not in compliance with the solicitation licensing requirement. GAO held that, since: (1) there was no requirement for a specific license, the contracting officer was free to make award without regard as to whether the awardee possessed a state license; and (2) compliance with a general licensing requirement was a matter between the contractor and the state authorities, it was not a legal basis to protest award. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
