A firm protested a Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) contract award for construction work, contending that BIA should terminate the contract since it subsequently determined that the awardee was not eligible for the Indian set-aside. GAO held that BIA reasonably accepted the awardee's self-certification, since there was nothing to suggest that the certification was incorrect at the time of award. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
