A firm protested the cancellation of its contract awards and the reopening of procurements after bid prices had been exposed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. GAO held that the: (1) protester did not file its protests with GAO until 10 months after its agency-level protests were denied; and (2) protests should have been filed within 10 days of adverse agency action to be considered timely. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.
