A firm protested a Department of Agriculture (USDA) contract award, contending that USDA should have awarded it the contract, since the awardee was not responsible and it was next low bidder. GAO held that it would not review the affirmative responsibility determination, since the protester could not provide evidence of fraud or bad faith. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
