A firm protested a Navy small business aside for latex balloons, contending that the awardee's balloons were not domestically manufactured. GAO held that the Navy improperly made award to the awardee, since regulations limit set-asides to sources supplying domestically produced products. Accordingly, the protest was sustained, and GAO recommended that the Navy reimburse the protester for its bid preparation and protest costs.
