A company protested the award of a contract pursuant to the tie bids provision in a solicitation failed to file with GAO within the required time limit following initial adverse agency action. The protester apparently was under the impression that the contracting officer's decision was appealable through the agency instead of being subject to GAO determination. Nevertheless, as the protester was on constructive notice of Bid Protest Procedures, the protest was dismissed as untimely.
