B-231573.2,B-231574.2: Oct 14, 1988
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protests under a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) solicitation for broker services. GAO had held that the Small Business Administration (SBA) properly refused to issue the protester a certificate of competency. The protester contended that SBA failed to consider its: (1) experience as a HUD area management broker; (2) ability to increase its staff to ensure contract completion; and (3) adequate credit situation. GAO held that the protester failed to show that SBA refused to consider vital information bearing on the protester's responsibility. Accordingly, the dismissals were affirmed.
