A firm protested a Department of Agriculture (USDA) delivery order for financial management system support services, contending that USDA: (1) improperly awarded the delivery order to the awardee, since it submitted the low bid; and (2) evaluated the bids on the basis of unstated evaluation criteria. GAO held that: (1) USDA properly rejected the protester's bid as nonresponsive, since the protester failed to indicate its total bid price; and (2) the protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest of alleged defective specifications. 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.
