A firm protested an Army contract award for a ticketing system, contending that the: (1) awardee offered a rebate that was not required in the solicitation; and (2) Army failed to give all potential bidders an opportunity to submit bids based on rebates. GAO held that the protest was untimely, since it was not filed within 10 working days after the basis for protest was known. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
