A firm protested a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) contract award for engineering analyses and testing services, contending that CPSC unreasonably made award to the awardee. GAO held that the protester: (1) untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest; and (2) was not sufficiently interested to protest the contract award, since its bid was rejected. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
