A firm protested a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) contract award for facility management services, contending that FAA improperly: (1) made award contrary to the solicitation's pricing scheme; (2) rejected its bid as nonresponsive; and (3) evaluated the intervening bidder's bid, since it contained inconsistencies and mistakes. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed its protest regarding the intervening bid and failed to diligently pursue its protest; (2) the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest was sustained; and (3) the solicitation allowed FAA to make award based solely on base period prices, since it was in the government's best interest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
