A firm protested a Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) contract award for drydocking maintenance, contending that the awardee had no drydock availability certificate and NAVSEA should have rejected its bid as nonresponsive. GAO held that the certification of drydocking availability concerns the bidders' capability to perform the contract and is a matter of responsibility which needs only to be met prior to award. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
