A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive, contending that its bid complied with the solicitation amendment. GAO held that the: (1) Air Force properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to acknowledge a material solicitation amendment which significantly impacted the bidders' obligations; and (2) protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
