Untimely Protests against Aircraft Parts Contract Award
B-188668: May 11, 1977
- Full Report:
A protester objected to the awards of two contracts by the Coast Guard. A protest sent by certified mail, postmarked less than 5 days prior to the final date for filing and received more than 10 working days after the date of the initial adverse agency action, was untimely. A protest filed with GAO 8 months after the initial protest was filed with the agency is untimely, since continued contract performance constitutes an adverse agency action.
