A firm protested several Army contract awards for building construction, contending that the Army failed to properly apply an evaluation preference to its bid based on its status as a small disadvantaged business. GAO held that the Army properly did not apply the evaluation preference, since the contracts: (1) exceeded $25,000; and (2) were for construction, which was precluded from the preference under the regulations. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.

    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.
