A firm protested an Air Force contract award, contending that the: (1) Air Force did not provide a written due date for best-and-final offers (BAFO); (2) Air Force did not promptly respond to its protest of the awardee's responsibility; and (3) awardee had preaward contact with one of its employees and failed to comply with certain documentation requirements after award. GAO held that the: (1) protester was not prejudiced by the Air Force's failure to provide a written BAFO due date, since the Air Force orally advised the protester of the due date which the protester met; (2) Air Force reasonably responded to the protester's responsibility protest within 2 weeks; and (3) other protest allegations were invalid, since they did not involve a violation of law or regulation. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
