A firm protested the award of a contract by the Navy to another firm. The protester asserted that the specifications, as stated in the solicitation, were deficient. The protest was dismissed as untimely, as protests based on improprieties in a solicitation, which are apparent prior to bid opening, must be filed prior to bid opening.
