A firm protested the Defense Personnel Support Center's (DPSC) rejection of its bid for plastic ophthalmic lenses, contending that DPSC: (1) failed to hold meaningful discussions prior to bid rejection; (2) usurped the Small Business Administration's authority to determine its responsibility. GAO held that the protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
