A firm protested two Defense General Supply Center (DGSC) contract awards for engine lubricating oil, contending that DGSC: (1) should have used the most current military specification for qualifying products; and (2) discriminated against it, since it granted the awardee a waiver when its product's approval expired. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest of DGSC use of the superseded military specification; (2) DGSC did not discriminate against the protester; and (3) DGSC properly granted an expiration waiver to the awardee, since it took the proper steps to keep its product qualified. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
