A firm protested a Navy contract award for the refurbishment of submarine pumps and motors, contending that the: (1) Navy improperly conducted discussions with the awardee and allowed it to reduce its bid price; and (2) awardee's offer violated a requirement for unit price integrity. GAO held that the: (1) Navy properly determined that it miscalculated the awardee's bid price; (2) Navy's attempt to clarify the bid price did not constitute discussions; (3) Navy properly awarded the contract on the basis of initial proposals; and (4) protester failed to show how the alleged unit price deficiency prejudiced other bidders. Accordingly, the protest was denied.

    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.
