A firm protested an Army contract award for food services, contending that the award price was not a fair market price. GAO held that: (1) there was no basis to find that the award was made at other than a fair market price, since the protester failed to furnish the awardee's price, its own price, or any other information to support its allegation; and (2) it would not review an affirmative responsibility determination without evidence of fraud, bad faith, or a failure to properly apply definitive responsibility criteria. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
