Pre-Award Protest Timeliness Rule Extended


In Comint Sys. Corp. v. U.S. (Dec. 7, 2012), the Federal Circuit extended its judicially imposed timeliness rules to require a protest of a solicitation defect to be filed in court prior to award, if practical, even if the alleged error occurred after proposals had been submitted. The court noted that this is consistent with the GAO timeliness rules.
