A firm protested a Coast Guard contract award for ship repairs, contending that the Coast Guard should have awarded it the contract, since its bid represented the lowest cost to the government. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest of the solicitation's evaluation scheme; and (2) Coast Guard properly evaluated the protester's bid based on all work items. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
