A firm protested the Army's rejection of its bid for housing maintenance and repair and the Small Business Administration's (SBA) refusal to issue it a certificate of competency, contending that: (1) both agencies improperly ignored favorable aspects of its performance under prior contracts; and (2) the nonresponsibility determination constituted de facto debarment. GAO held that the protester: (1) untimely protested more than 10 days after it became aware of the basis for protest; and (2) failed to show that the Army or SBA acted in bad faith in their nonresponsibility determination. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
