A firm protested a Defense Commercial Communications Office (DECCO) contract award for telecommunications services, contending that DECCO: (1) improperly scheduled a site survey after the specified closing dates; (2) should have awarded it the contract under a prior, cancelled solicitation; (3) improperly conducted a private site visit with the awardee; and (4) should have awarded it the contract, since it submitted the only offer that met the required service dates. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed its allegations concerning the first three issues more than 10 working days after it became aware of its basis for protest; and (2) DECCO properly awarded the contract to the low bidder, since the ability to meet service dates was not material. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed in part and denied in part.
