Three firms protested an Agency for International Development contract award for ship chartering and commodity forwarding services under food donation programs. The solicitation provided that: (1) the contract would be performed at no cost to the government; and (2) the selected contractor would receive commissions directly from the ocean carriers. GAO has held that the selection of a contractor to provide travel management services at no cost to the government is not a matter for GAO consideration. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
