A firm protested the Department of Energy's (DOE) rejection of its site proposal for the Superconducting Super Collider. DOE contended that GAO lacked jurisdictional authority to consider the protest because it concerned a request for a donation of real property at no cost to the government. GAO held that: (1) DOE properly rejected the bid, since it did not comply with the solicitation's requirement that there be no cost to the government; and (2) it was unnecessary to determine the question of jurisdiction, since the protest was without merit. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
