A firm protested an Army contract award for archaeological excavations, contending that: (1) awardee fraudulents gained access to its confidential data; and (2) such misuse of confidential information warranted the consideration of its untimely filed protest under the significant-issue exception to the protest timeliness requirements. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed its protest nearly 4 weeks after it became aware of the basis for protest; and (2) there was no reason to grant an exception to the timeliness rules, since the protest was essentially a dispute between private parties. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
