A firm protested a contract award under a solicitation issued by the Defense Logistics Agency for photographic development materials. The firm contended that the awardee's proposal contained misrepresentations concerning its affiliations with other corporate entities, its status as a minority-business enterprise, and its eligibility for a labor-surplus-area preference. The protester also alleged that the awardee was not responsible because its price was too low to permit competent performance. GAO declined to consider the protest, because the protester did not meet the criteria of a party interested in the procurement since it would not be in line for award if the protest were sustained. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
