A firm protested an Air Force contract award for a study, contending that the: (1) awardee's bid did not meet the solicitation's technical specifications; (2) awardee could not perform the contract within the funding available; and (3) Air Force predetermined that it would make award to the awardee. GAO held that: (1) the protester failed to provide a sufficient basis of protest; and (2) it would not review the Air Force's affirmative responsibility determination, since there was no evidence of fraud or bad faith. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
