A firm protested the Naval Aviation Supply Office's rejection of its bid for air turbine nozzle seals, contending that the Navy improperly failed to: (1) consider its bid; and (2) comply with procurement regulations concerning bid errors. GAO held that the protester: (1) was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained; (2) was not an approved source for the item and was not eligible for award; and (3) did not provide clear and convincing evidence of its pricing error and intended bid price. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
