A firm protested the Defense Logistics Agency's (DLA) rejection of its bid for windshield support assembly units, contending that DLA improperly rejected its best-and-final offer (BAFO) as late. GAO held that DLA properly rejected the protester's BAFO as late, since the protester: (1) did not meet the specified closing time for BAFO submission; and (2) improperly relied on oral advice that contradicted the written specification. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
