A firm protested a Navy contract award, contending that the: (1) awardee was not eligible for award, since it was not a small disadvantaged business; and (2) awardee's bid price was unreasonably low. GAO held that it would not consider the protest, since: (1) the Small Business Administration had jurisdiction to determine the awardee's size status; and (2) the Navy's determination that the awardee could perform the contract at its bid price was a matter of bidder responsibility; and (3) there was no evidence of bad faith or that the Navy failed to follow definitive responsibility criteria. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
