A firm protested a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) contract award for evacuation bag liners and the rejection of its telegraphic bid modification as late, contending that, since it transmitted the modification to DPSC prior to bid opening, government mishandling caused the late receipt. GAO held that government mishandling was not the cause for late receipt, since: (1) the protester failed to allow sufficient time for delivery to the procurement office; and (2) receipt of the modification in another location of the government installation did not make its receipt timely. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
