A firm protested a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) solicitation for water chiller conversions, contending that: (1) VA improperly converted the solicitation to a sole-source procurement; and (2) the awardee did not propose experienced personnel as the solicitation required. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protest after bid opening; (2) protester's communication with VA did not constitute an agency-level protest; and (3) issue of the awardee's personnel was a matter of contractor responsibility which it would not review, since there was no evidence that VA acted in bad faith or misapplied definitive responsibility criteria. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
