[Protest of Navy's Rejection of Bid for Pipe Supplies]
B-230040: Feb 24, 1988
- Full Report:
A firm protested the Navy's rejection of its bid for pipe supplies, contending that: (1) its bid did not conform with the packaging requirements because its supplier would not so provide the material; and (2) since the awardee was using the same supplier, its bid would not conform to the specifications. GAO held that since the protester untimely filed its agency-level protest, its subsequent protest to GAO was also untimely. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
