A firm protested the Army's rejection of its low bid and subsequent contract award for diagnostic tests, contending that the Army improperly determined that its proposed physician was not eligible to perform the contract, since its physician completed a program establishing certifying board eligibility for performing the contract. GAO held that the Army reasonably concluded that the protester's low bid was technically unacceptable, since the protester's proposed physician was not board-certified or eligible to perform the contract as required. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
