A firm protested the Navy's cancellation of a solicitation for computer services, contending that the Navy improperly: (1) planned to make a sole-source award to another contractor; and (2) decided to perform the required services in-house. GAO held that: (1) since the Navy did not make a sole-source award, the protest was academic; and (2) it would not review the Navy's decision to perform the services in-house, since the Navy never issued a competitive solicitation for cost-comparison purposes. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed, and the protester's claim for reimbursement for protest preparation costs was denied.
