A firm protested an Air Force delivery order for automatic data processing (ADP) equipment, contending that the Air Force should have issued a competitive solicitation for the equipment: (1) since it submitted a technically acceptable proposal at a lower cost; and (2) if it had evaluated the other offers it received. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to show any evidence to establish that it had submitted a timely response to the Air Force's Commerce Business Daily notice; and (2) was not sufficiently interested to protest the Air Force's evaluation of other offers. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
