A firm protested an Army contract award for recreational facility operation, contending that: (1) the awardee was not a small disadvantaged business and was ineligible for award; (2) it did not have an reasonable opportunity to submit a responsive bid, since the solicitation's specifications were defective; and (3) the Army failed to hold meaningful discussions with it regarding apparent deficiencies in its bid. GAO held that the: (1) protest was academic, since the Army resolicited the requirement as a small business set-aside; and (2) protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
