A firm protested its disqualification to submit a bid in response to a solicitation based upon its failure to file a standard form which was apparently used to compile a qualified bidders list. The protester filed the protest with the agency, but the agency proceeded to bid opening without any response. The protest, which was subsequently filed with GAO more than 10 days after the date of bid opening, was untimely. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
