The protester objected to the rejection of its low bid, alleging that the contracting officer had not provided the assistance required to be given to a small business concern before determining that its bid was nonresponsive. The protest was untimely and not for consideration on its merits since it was filed more than 5 days after the protester received notice of the agency's adverse action on its protest.
