B-270498: Dec 1, 1995

A firm protested a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) contract award, contending that: (1) the awardee was not responsible; and (2) VA discriminated against it. GAO held that: (1) it would not consider the affirmative determination of the awardee's responsibility, since the protester failed to provide any evidence that VA failed to follow definitive responsibility criteria; and (2) the protester's allegation of racial bias was not valid basis for protest, since the protester failed to provide sufficient evidence that VA acted improperly. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
