A firm protested a Department of Energy (DOE) subcontract award, contending that the subcontractor issued the solicitation on behalf of DOE. GAO held that it did not have jurisdiction over the subcontract award, since: (1) the subcontractor was not acting on behalf of the government; and (2) DOE was not involved in the procurement. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
