ClockIn Motorola Solutions, Inc., GAO relied on an exception to the timeliness rule to sustain a protest over an Army contract for a land mobile radio system. GAO found the 10-day rule did not bar the protester’s claim because protester’s counsel was unable to share the information supporting the claim with the protester when he received the information. GAO issued the decision on January 28, 2014, and it was published today. The decision highlights the critical role that communication between company personnel and outside counsel plays in a protest and provides an interesting case in which the well-established 10-day rule does not apply.
