A firm protested the Navy's rejection of its late bid, contending that the Navy should have accepted its bid, since the: (1) short time period between its receipt of a solicitation amendment and the bid opening date placed it at a competitive disadvantage with bidders located close to the contracting office; and (2) Navy had adequate time to transfer its bid from the receiving area to the bid opening room. GAO held that the protester: (1) untimely protested an alleged solicitation impropriety; (2) was responsible for ensuring that its bid arrived on time at the designated location; and (3) did not show that the Navy intentionally mishandled its bid. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed in part and denied in part.
