A firm protested a Navy solicitation for stadimeters, contending that the solicitation: (1) specifications were defective; and (2) lacked adequate assembly and alignment information, precluding equal competition. GAO held that the: (1) protester merely disagreed with the specifications, and did not allege that it could not meet them or that it was economically affected by them; (2) Navy planned to ensure proper assembly and alignment through first article testing; and (3) protester did not prove that the Navy's solicitation restricted competition. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed in part and denied in part.
