A firm protested the propriety of a Veterans Administration request for proposals for laundry services, contending that the solicitation's bonding requirements were unfair and that the specifications were ambiguous. Bid protest procedures specify that protests based on alleged improprieties in a solicitation which are apparent on the fact of the solicitation will not be considered unless filed with the procuring agency or GAO prior to bid opening or the closing date for receipt of proposals. Since this protest was filed after that date, it was untimely and not for consideration. Accordingly the protest was dismissed.
