[Protest of SBA Certificate of Competency Determination]
B-255918,B-255919: Mar 8, 1994
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Small Business Administration's (SBA) determination that it was not eligible for a certificate of competency. The protester also contended that SBA essentially debarred it. GAO held that: (1) it would not consider the protest, which concerned issues that it had previously resolved; (2) SBA did not create a de facto debarment, since it properly determined that the protester was not responsible under two separate procurements, not as part of a long-term disqualification attempt. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed in part and denied in part.
