A firm protested a Defense Commissary Agency (DCA) contract award for personnel, supervision, food products and supplies for commissary deli-bakeries, contending that DCA unreasonably evaluated its bid. GAO held that: (1) DCA reasonably determined that the protester was not responsible due to its recent conviction on fraud charges steming from a false statement made to DCA; and (2) the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the contract award, since it would not be eligible for award even if its protest was sustained. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
