A firm protested an Army contract award for moving services, contending that the: (1) awardee did not have the proper license at the time of bid opening; and (2) Army improperly delayed award so that the awardee could obtain the license. The protester also requested payment under its current contract. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest; and (2) protester's payment request was a matter of contract administration which it would not consider. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
