A firm protested a General Services Administration (GSA) solicitation for paper shipping sacks, contending that the: (1) Postal Service asked GSA to only purchase sacks meeting certain specifications, since it was biased in favor of another bidder; and (2) shipping sacks solicited exceeded the government's minimum needs, since local post offices could acquire other sacks from sources other than GSA. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to submit evidence to support its allegation of bias; and (2) untimely filed its protest of the government's minimum needs more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
