A firm protested a Navy contract award for storage tanks, contending that the Navy improperly extended the delivery date for the awardee. GAO held that the protester: (1) was not sufficiently interested to protest the award, since it would not be in line for award even if its protest were sustained; (2) failed to submit a timely bid in response to the solicitation; and (3) failed to file a timely protest challenging the rejection of its late bid. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
