A firm protested an Army contract award for vehicle repairs, contending that the Army should have rejected the awardee's bid as nonresponsive, since it failed to include a required certificate of procurement integrity. GAO held that the: (1) solicitation did not require the bidders to submit a certificate of procurement integrity; and (2) protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest regarding the solicitation's alleged defects. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
