A firm protested the Defense Personnel Support Center's (DPSC) rejection of its bid under a small business set-aside solicitation for garrison caps, contending that DPSC: (1) made errors and otherwise acted in bad faith during the preaward survey; and (2) failed to respond to its requests for copies of the preaward survey in time for it to file an application for a certificate of competency (COC). GAO held that: (1) the protester had the responsibility to timely file a COC application; and (2) DPSC was not required to provide the protester with copies of the survey for use in the COC procedure. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
