A firm protested a Forest Service contract award for appraisal services, contending that the Forest Service improperly rejected its bid. GAO held that the: (1) Forest Service did not accept the protester's bid, since acceptance of the bid would be unfair to the other bidder's; and (2) protester untimely filed its protest after it learned of initial adverse action on its agency-level protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
