A firm protested the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) rejection of its bid, contending that VA should have accepted its late bid, since the bid's late arrival was due to mail delivery problems beyond its control. GAO held that the: (1) protester did not meet any of the exceptions for accepting a late bid; and (2) VA properly rejected the protester's late bid. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
