A firm protested eight Army solicitations for spare parts, contending that they conflicted with its mandatory requirements contract. GAO held that: (1) the protester untimely filed after bid opening its protests against alleged improprieties in four of the solicitations; and (2) since the Army cancelled or planned to cancel the remaining four solicitations, the protests against them were academic. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.
