Two firms protested the Navy's additional discussions under a solicitation for support services. The first protester contended that the Navy improperly: (1) requested another round of discussions after originally having decided to award it the contract; and (2) disclosed its price to the second protester. The second protester contended that GAO should determine if offerers were entitled to any remedial action. GAO held that the: (1) Navy properly reopened negotiations, since it lacked sufficient information to properly evaluate the first protester's bid; (2) alleged price disclosure was speculative, since there was no evidence of disclosure; and (3) second protester was not entitled to any remedial action, since it had an opportunity to compete in the additional discussions. Accordingly, the protests were 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.
