A firm protested numerous Department of Transportation (DOT) solicitations for computer equipment and supplies and National Institutes of Health (NIH) solicitations for medical supplies and other equipment, contending that the solicitations' item descriptions were inadequate and defective. GAO held that the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the solicitations, since there was no indication that the protester had a direct economic interest in the solicitations. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
