A firm protested an Air Force contract award for an automated used-oil analysis system, contending that it should have received the award, since it offered an equivalent product at a lower price. GAO held that it would not consider the protest, since the protester failed to file its comments on the agency report within 14 calendar days of the report's due date. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
