A firm protested the Small Business Administration's (SBA) refusal to issue it a certificate of competency. GAO held that: (1) SBA had sole jurisdiction to review the nonresponsibility determination; and (2) there was no evidence that SBA acted fraudulently or in bad faith or that SBA failed to consider vital information concerning the protester's responsibility. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
