A firm protested an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) contract award for a storage system, contending that the awardee was not eligible for award, since its subcontractor was not a small disadvantaged business. GAO held that it would not consider the protest, since the Small Business Administration had jurisdiction to determine the subcontractor's size status. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
