A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid for clothing, contending that: (1) the Air Force should have made award to it, since its bid was essentially responsive and lower in price; (2) it was sufficiently interested to protest the award; and (3) the Air Force failed to define the solicitation's evaluation scheme. GAO held that the: (1) Air Force properly rejected the protester's bid, since its product failed to meet the Air Force's needs; (2) Air Force properly awarded the contract to the technically acceptable bidder; (3) protester was not sufficiently interested to protest, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained; and (4) protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest regarding the alleged defective evaluation criteria. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
