Gary M. Williamson--Agency Tender Official
B-400153: Aug 1, 2008
Gary M. Williamson, the designated agency tender official (ATO) for the U.S. Air Force Mobility Command's tender in a public-private competition to be conducted pursuant to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-76, protests various actions taken by the agency in preparation for release of solicitation No. FA4452-08-R-0008 that was issued in connection with the pending competition. The ATO asserts that, in preparing to conduct the A-76 competition, the agency improperly released to other potential offerors certain cost and staffing information about the in-house organization currently performing the activities to be competed.
We dismiss the protest on the basis that the ATO does not qualify as an "interested party," as defined by applicable statute.
