A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid as nonresponsible because it failed to apply for a certificate of competency (COC). GAO held that: (1) it would not review the Air Force's nonresponsibility determination, since the protester was responsible for filing a complete COC application with the Small Business Administration (SBA); and (2) the Air Force properly referred the protester to SBA for COC consideration. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
