A firm protested a Veterans Administration contract award for a construction project, contending that the awardee: (1) did not possess a valid state contractor's license; and (2) was not in compliance with the solicitation licensing requirement. GAO held that, since: (1) there was no requirement for a specific license, the contracting officer was free to make award without regard as to whether the awardee possessed a state license; and (2) compliance with a general licensing requirement was a matter between the contractor and the state authorities, it was not a legal basis to protest award. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.

    We dismiss the protest as untimely because it was filed more than 10 days after the protester knew, or should have known, the basis for its protest.
