A firm protested a Navy contract award for world-wide diving and diving-related services, contending that the: (1) Navy improperly evaluated its technical proposal; and (2) awardee did not comply with a definitive responsibility criterion. GAO held that: (1) the Navy's evaluation was reasonable and consistent with the solicitation's evaluation factors; and (2) it would not review the Navy's affirmative responsibility determination, since the protester failed to demonstrate bad faith on the part of the Navy, or that a definitive responsibility criterion was not met. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
