A firm protested the Naval Facilities Engineering Command's (NAVFAC) rejection of its late bid for painting, contending that federal regulations permitted the acceptance of: (1) bids that were late due to U.S. Postal Service (USPS) mishandling; and (2) advantageous late bids. GAO held that NAVFAC properly rejected the protester's bid, since: (1) allegations regarding USPS mishandling of its bid were not subject to federal regulations, which only permitted the acceptance of late bids due to government mishandling after receipt; and (2) regulations regarding acceptance of advantageous bids only applied to late modifications of otherwise successful bids. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
