A firm protested the General Services Administration's (GSA) rejection of its bid and proposed contract award for software services, contending that: (1) GSA did not allow it to adequately prepare its bid, since it failed to answer numerous questions regarding the solicitation; (2) GSA failed to conduct meaningful discussions with it; and (3) the awardee could not perform the contract at its proposed price. GAO held that: (1) GSA was not required to answer the protester's questions, since they were not directly related to the solicitation or bid preparation; (2) GSA properly excluded the protester from negotiations, since its bid was technically unacceptable; and (3) the protest against the awardee's responsibility was academic, since the proposed awardee was no longer in consideration for award. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
