A firm protested a Defense General Supply Center (DGSC) solicitation for solvent cleaning machines and related items, contending that its competitors were nonresponsible and in violation of certain safety standards. GAO held that it would not review the affirmative responsibility determinations, since the protester failed to provide evidence of fraud or bad faith or that DGSC misapplied definitive responsibility criteria. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
