A firm protested a General Services Administration (GSA) contract award for janitorial and related services, contending that GSA improperly induced it to raise its price during discussions. GAO held that the protester: (1) did not respond to GSA explanations of its actions in its comments on the agency report; and (2) untimely filed its protest of the awardee's authority to enter into the contract after it knew the basis of protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
