A firm protested a Government Printing Office (GPO) contract award for copying services, contending that GPO should have: (1) made award to it; (2) reimbursed it for the costs of leasing a required copier; and (3) compensated it for overestimating the scope of work under two previous contracts. GAO held that the: (1) protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest; and (2) issue of GPO estimated requirements under previous contracts was a matter of contract administration, which it would not review. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
