[Protest of Air Force Rejection of Bid for Janitorial Services]
B-244157: Jun 18, 1991
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid for janitorial services, contending that the Air Force improperly rejected its bid as technically unacceptable without referring the matter to the Small Business Administration (SBA) under certificate-of-competency procedures. GAO held that the Air Force was not required to refer its determination to SBA, since it did not find that the protester was nonresponsible. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
