Frank A. Bloomer--Agency Tender Official
B-401482: Jul 20, 2009
Frank A. Bloomer, Agency Tender Official (ATO), protests the Department of the Army's award of a contract to The Ginn Group, Inc. (Ginn) to perform directorate of public works (DPW) functions at the United States Army Garrison at West Point, New York, following a public-private competition conducted under Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-76. The ATO alleges that Ginn obtained confidential information about the public tender from a private consultant who had assisted the ATO in preparing the most efficient organization (MEO), in violation of statutory procurement integrity provisions.
We dismiss the protest as untimely because the allegations were not raised within the time required by the statutory procurement integrity provisions as a condition precedent to our considering these allegations.
