A firm protested a Bureau of Prisons (BOP) contract award for vending machine services, contending that: (1) BOP improperly permitted the awardee to change its bid price without giving it a similar opportunity; and (2) the awardee did not meet the solicitation requirement for new machines. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew its basis of protest; and (2) issue of the awardee providing used rather than new machines was a matter of contract administration and not subject to GAO review. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
