A firm protested a Defense General Supply Center (DGSC) contract award for pipecutting and beveling machines, contending that the awardee was allowed to offer machines that did not comply with the solicitation requirement. GAO held that the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it lacked a direct economic interest to maintain its protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
