A firm protested an Air Force contract award for the repair, calibration, and certification of test, measurement, and diagnostic equipment, contending that the Air Force: (1) unreasonably made award to the awardee, since its bid was technically superior; (2) unreasonably determined that the awardee was responsible; and (3) failed to provide pre-award notices to the other bidders. GAO held that the: (1) protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained; (2) protester's best and final offer was unacceptable, since it failed to include required pricing information; and (3) Air Force was not required to reopen discussions with the protester to correct its bid deficiency. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
