A firm protested two requirements in a request for quotations (RFQ) issued by the Defense Industrial Supply Center. The protester contended that it was denied the right to bid since the RFQ required suppliers to be dealers and that it would have had to reveal sources of supply to qualify as a bidder. Bid protest procedures require that protests based upon alleged improprieties in a solicitation that are apparent before the closing date for receipt of quotations be filed by the closing date. Since this protest was not filed by that date, it was untimely. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
