A firm protested a Navy contract award, contending that the awardee did not submit evidence of a current asbestos abatement license with its bid, as the solicitation required. GAO held that the: (1) responsibility requirement could be satisfied at any time prior to award, even though the solicitation stated that the required evidence must have been furnished at bid opening; and (2) protester had no valid basis of protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
