Two firms protested an Agency for International Development (AID) contract award for construction, contending that AID improperly determined that their bids were unbalanced. GAO held that: (1) AID improperly rejected the first protester's bid, since it would result in the lowest overall cost to the government; (2) it would not review affirmative responsibility determination, since the second protester failed to provide evidence of fraud or bad faith; and (3) the second protester was not sufficiently interested to protest, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained. Accordingly, the first protest was sustained and the second protest was dismissed.

  • Interoperability Clearinghouse
    We dismiss the protest because the protester, a not-for-profit entity, is not an interested party to challenge this sole-source award to an Alaska Native Corporation under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) program.
