A firm protested the award of an Army contract for improvements to be made at a sewage treatment plant. It contended that several specifications were ambiguous, and that the solicitation should be canceled and resolicited. Protest procedures require that protests of alleged deficiencies in a solicitation which are evident prior to bid opening be filed before that date. Since the instant protest was filed after bid opening, it was dismissed as untimely.
