A firm protested the Department of the Interior's rejection of its late bid, contending that its bid should be considered for award, since the late arrival of its bid was caused by additional building security. GAO held that the late delivery of the protester's bid was not a result of government action, since the commercial carrier attempted to deliver the bid to the wrong address. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
