[Protest of Contract Award Alleging VA Improperly Removed Set-Aside Restriction]
B-216540: Oct 22, 1984
- Full Report:
A firm protested a contract award to another firm under a Veterans Administration (VA) solicitation, contending that VA improperly removed a small business set-aside restriction on the procurement. GAO held that the protest was untimely filed because the matter was not protested to either VA or GAO before the bid opening date. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
