A firm protested a Navy contract award for construction of an anti-armor tracking and live-fire range, contending that the Navy should cancel the solicitation, since the awardee's bid was higher than its bid for the same work under a previously cancelled solicitation. GAO held that the: (1) Navy reasonably cancelled the original solicitation because competition was inadequate to establish a market price for the required construction; (2) Navy reasonably made award to the low bidder under the instant solicitation; (3) protester inexplicably increased its bid under the instant solicitation; and (4) protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it would not be in line for award if its protest were sustained. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
