Three individuals protested the Army's rejection of their bids for various instruction services for former Eastern Bloc personnel, contending that the: (1) Army unreasonably evaluated the bids; (2) military experience requirement was incredibly ambiguous and open to interpretation; and (3) Army acted in bad faith. GAO held that the: (1) Army reasonably determined that the protesters' bids lacked sufficient information to establish that they met the military experience qualification; (2) protesters untimely filed after bid opening their protests of the alleged ambiguity in the military experience specification; (3) protesters were not sufficiently interested to protest the evaluation of the awardees' bids, since they would not be in line for award even if their protests were sustained; and (4) protesters failed to submit information supporting their allegations of bad faith and antisemitism when they filed their protests. Accordingly, protests were denied.
