May.11.2006

U.S. (May 8, 2006, http://www.fedcir.gov/opinions/05-5142.pdf) emphasized that a company must respond to a solicitation, even if it thinks it is flawed, to be able to have standing as an "interested party" to protest. Unless the company is prevented from bidding (e.g., by a sole-source award), a company does not meet the requirements of being "an actual or prospective bidder" with a "direct economic interest" if it could have bid but didn't.
