A firm protested the Air Force's rejection of its bid as nonresponsive, contending that its signed certificate of procurement integrity-modification was sufficient to bind it to the basic certificate requirements. GAO held that the: (1) modification certificate was not the same as the basic certificate, since it concerned only potential post-award contract modifications; (2) protester did not satisfy the requirement for a signed certificate of procurement integrity; and (3) Air Force properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since the basic certificate was a material requirement. 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.
