Protest was made to any award to competitor for blind pneumatic riveters in invitation for bids. Protested was the purchase description in the invitation and the omission from the invitation of a bid sample requirement. Since the protest was not received prior to the bid opening, the protest was untimely and could not be considered on the merits. (SW)
