A firm protested the Veterans Administration's (VA) award of a contract to another firm. The protester asserted that the awardee's director was on a debarred contractors list. The firm filed a protest with GAO after it was notified by VA of the contract award. However, the firm failed to file its protest within 10 working days after the basis for its protest was known. Since the protest was not filed in a timely manner, GAO would not consider it. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
