A firm protested a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) solicitation for space launch services, contending that the solicitation was ambiguous and unduly restrictive. GAO held that: (1) NASA reasonably interpreted statutory law in determining its authority to restrict the solicitation to offerers of domestic equipment; and (2) the protester was not sufficiently interested to challenge other alleged solicitation defects, since its status as an offerer of foreign equipment rendered it ineligible to compete under the solicitation. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
