A Day Early Is Too Late

September 29, 2004

In Guam Shipyard [September 16, 2004], GAO held that a protest of the terms of an RFQ was untimely when it was transmitted to GAO the day before quotes were due, but that day was a federal holiday. GAO acknowledged that the protester had sent the protest to GAO on July 5 by both facsimile and e-mail, and that GAO had received both on that day; however, because documents are considered filed only on days when GAO is open for business, the protest was not deemed filed until 8:30 am on July 6 -- the same day, but several hours after, quotes were due in Japan.
