A firm protested an Army Materiel Command contract award for automated data processing equipment and related software, contending that the Army improperly: (1) evaluated the awardee's bid; and (2) made award to the technically unacceptable bidder. GAO held that the protester: (1) was informed before award that the Army found the awardee's product technically acceptable; and (2) untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
