A firm protested the General Services Administration's (GSA) rejection of its bid and subsequent contract award, contending that GSA should not have been allowed to award the contract while its appeal to the Small Business Administration (SBA) was pending. GAO held that: (1) GSA was not under any obligation to withhold award until SBA rendered a decision on the protester's appeal; and (2) the post-award SBA ruling did not affect the contract award. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
