[Protest of Specifications in Army Corps of Engineers Solicitation for Construction at Training Center]
B-224252: Oct 9, 1986
- Full Report:
A firm protested certain specifications under an Army solicitation for shelving, contending that they described equipment offered by only one vendor. GAO held that: (1) the protester failed to timely file the protest before bid opening; and (2) the protester's oral complaint to the contracting officer before bid opening did not constitute a timely protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
