GAO Dismisses Subcontract Protest


Noting that its protest jurisdiction extends only to awards “by a Federal agency,” in Addison Construction, Inc., B-293805, April 20, 2004, GAO dismissed the protest because the prime contractor evaluated the proposals and made the award decision. However, GAO noted it would take jurisdiction if the agency handled all the substantive aspects of the procurement, even if the prime contractor handled the procedural aspects, such as issuing the solicitation and receiving proposals.
