A firm protested the Army Corps of Engineers' rejection of its bid, contending that the Corps improperly rejected its bid as nonresponsive, since it had 45 days after the bond's execution to meet the surety limitation. GAO held that the protester: (1) untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest; and (2) had constructive notice of the applicable procurement regulation prior to the Corps' rejection of its bid. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
