A firm protested a Federal Highway Administration contract award for value engineering workshops, contending that its partner improperly collaborated with the awardee in competition with itself. The protester also claimed reimbursement for its bid and protest preparation costs. GAO held that it would not review a dispute between private parties in the context of a bid protest. Accordingly, the protest and claim were dismissed.
