A protester argued that inclusion of "on call" services in a janitorial services solicitation provided an unfair advantage to the incumbent firm. Since the alleged impropriety in the solicitation was apparent prior to bid opening and the protest was not filed until 12 days after bid opening, the protest was dismissed as untimely.
