The time set for receipt of proposals was 2 p.m. No other directions pertaining to proposal delivery were included in the RFP. The RFP stated that "offers are responsible for submitting offers. A local delivery company was to hand-carry the proposal to the designated address. That the building HQ USSOCOM is not listed on that map. Discovered that the address was located in a restricted area on the base. With keypad access only. /1/ The time was approximately 1:47 p.m. Which was in a trailer behind one of the buildings. Which was at the same address initially designated for the submission of proposals located in an unsecured area at MacDill AFB. O.S. essentially contends that the sole causes of the late delivery of the proposal were the lack of clear instructions in the RFP concerning the hand-delivery of proposals.
