B-192895: Sep 28, 1978

(202) 512-4800

A company protested award of a contract, contending that the awardee cannot deliver equipment in accordance with the specified delivery time and the Buy American provisions in its bid. Compliance with delivery and Buy American provisions involve matters of contract administration and are not for consideration by GAO. The awardee's capability to comply with these provisions involves a determination of responsibility which also is not for consideration by GAO. It was clear from the protester's submission that the issues are not reviewable, and the protest was dismissed with obtaining a report from the procuring agency.
