A firm protested an Air Force contract award for training aircraft, contending that the: (1) Air Force unreasonably excluded its bid from the competitive range; and (2) contract award violated a domestic-source requirement. GAO held that the: (1) Air Force reasonably determined that the protester's bid was technically unacceptable; and (2) protester was not sufficiently interested to challenge the Air Force's acceptance of the awardee's bid. Accordingly, the protest was denied in part and dismissed in part.
