A firm protested three Army solicitations for painting and building repairs, contending that the Army improperly set aside two solicitations for small disadvantaged businesses and one solicitation under the Small Business Administration's section 8(a) program. GAO held that the: (1) Army properly set aside the solicitations for small disadvantaged businesses, since the Army had a statutory requirement to set aside some procurements for small disadvantaged businesses and such set-asides did not violate the applicable regulations regarding discrimination; and (2) protester untimely filed its GAO-level protest regarding the section 8(a) program set-aside more than 10 working days after initial adverse action on its agency-level protest. Accordingly, the protests were dismissed.
