A firm protested an Indian Health Service (IHS) purchase order for cold sterilization solution, contending that IHS improperly: (1) withdrew the Indian-owned set-aside requirement; (2) made award to a large non-Indian-owned business; and (3) failed to obtain approval for the cancelled requirement. GAO held that the protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of its protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
