A firm protested a General Services Administration (GSA) solicitation and prior contract award for epoxy materials, contending that GSA acceptance of a nonconforming packaging system constituted fraud or intentional misconduct. GAO held that: (1) it would not consider the protest of the prior award, since it previously considered and rejected the protest issues; (2) it would not consider matters of contract administration; (3) the protest regarding the current solicitation was without merit, since the solicitation provided for consideration of alternative packaging; and (4) GSA properly relaxed the specifications to allow for alternative packaging, since that would best meet its needs. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.

    We dismiss the protest as untimely because it was filed more than 10 days after the protester knew, or should have known, the basis for its protest.
