A firm protested a Defense Industrial Supply Center (DISC) contract award for continuous thread steel rods, contending that DISC: (1) mishandled its bid; (2) should have considered it for award, since its bid was low; and (3) improperly disclosed its intended bid price to the public. GAO held that the protester: (1) was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since its bid was not low and it would not be in line for award if its protest were sustained; and (2) failed to provide any evidence that DISC improperly disclosed its bid price. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
