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.

    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.
