[Protest of GSA Rejection of Bid for Diesel Fire Pump Installation]
B-229498: Nov 9, 1987
- Full Report:
A firm protested the General Services Administration's (GSA) rejection of its bid for fire pump installation, contending that GSA improperly determined that its bid guarantee was insufficient. GAO noted that the GSA Board of Contract Appeals rejected the protester's initial protest. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it became aware of the basis for protest; and (2) GSBCA protest did not toll GAO timeliness requirements. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
