A firm protested a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) contract award for satellites, contending that NASA: (1) misevaluated the technical proposals; and (2) failed to conduct a cost realism analysis in accordance with the stated evaluation criteria. GAO held that NASA: (1) reasonably determined that the awardee's bid was technically superior to the protester's bid and presented less risk; (2) properly evaluated the bids in accordance with the stated evaluation criteria; and (3) reasonably determined that the awardee's bid represented the greatest value to the government. Accordingly, the protest was denied.

    We dismiss the protest because the protester, a not-for-profit entity, is not an interested party to challenge this sole-source award to an Alaska Native Corporation under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) program.
