A firm requested reconsideration of the dismissal of its bid protest under a Defense Logistics Agency solicitation, contending that it submitted its protest within the required time. GAO held that a protest is considered timely if it is received by the closing date for proposal receipt, not sent by the closing date. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed.
