A firm claimed reimbursement for its bid and protest costs pursuant to its protests of a Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) contract award, subsequent corrective action, and inadvertent disclosure of proprietary documents. GAO held that the claimant was not entitled to reimbursement, since the claimant: (1) withdrew its initial protest after NAVSEA timely responded with corrective action; and (2) untimely filed its claim for costs. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
