A firm protested an Air Force contract award for acquisition support, contending that the: (1) awardee's bid did not represent the best value to the government, since it submitted a lower bid price than the awardee; and (2) awardee lacked the capacity to perform the contract. GAO held that the: (1) Air Force reasonably awarded the contract to the awardee, based on both cost and technical factors; and (2) Small Business Administration had the exclusive authority to determine the awardee's responsibility, since it was a small business. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
