A firm protested an Army contract award for utility monitoring and control systems, contending that the Army should have rejected the awardee's bid, since it was unbalanced. GAO held that the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since the protester: (1) would not receive award even if its protest was sustained; and (2) did not challenge the intervening bidders' technical and cost proposals. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
