A firm protested an Air Force contract award to another firm for radio equipment, contending that the Air Force: (1) improperly evaluated both its technical and price proposals; (2) failed to conduct meaningful discussions regarding its deficient technical proposal; and (3) failed to provide adequate time for it to properly respond to questions during its product demonstration. GAO held that the Air Force: (1) properly evaluated the protester's proposal, since the protester failed to adequately demonstrate its understanding of the requirements; (2) properly informed the protester of its proposal's deficiencies; and (3) correctly evaluated the protester's price on the basis of the base and additive items it proposed. Accordingly, the protest was denied.

    We dismiss the protest because the protester, a not-for-profit entity, is not an interested party to challenge this sole-source award to an Alaska Native Corporation under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) program.
