A firm protested the cancellation of a Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) solicitation, contending that: (1) BIA advised the protester that it would receive award under a new solicitation; and (2) it did not have reason to protest the cancellation until it learned that award under the new solicitation was made to another bidder. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest; and (2) propriety of the cancellation did not depend on how BIA would allegedly proceed under the new solicitation. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
