A firm protested any Defense Supply Service (DSS) contract award for medical services for beneficiaries of the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services, contending that: (1) there were solicitation and contracting improprieties; (2) DSS improperly eliminated it from the competitive range; and (3) the low offerors were not responsible or had access to proprietary information. GAO held that the protester either untimely filed its protest or lacked legally sufficient grounds for protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
