A firm protested the Army Corps of Engineers rejection of its late bid, contending that: (1) a police roadblock prevented it from delivering its bid on time; and (2) the Corps failed to provide sufficient time for it to prepare and submit its bid. GAO held that the protester: (1) did not meet the exceptions under which the Corps could consider its late bid; and (2) untimely filed after bid opening its protest of the Corps' alleged failure to allow sufficient bid preparation time. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
