A firm requested reconsideration of a decision in which GAO dismissed its protest of alleged deficiencies in a General Services Administration (GSA) cost comparison, because the protester failed to first exhaust available administrative review procedures. The protester contended that the requirement was not applicable since GSA had no administrative review procedures. GAO found that the solicitation contained a provision that set forth appeal procedures and, since the protester did not file an appeal pursuant to that provision, the protester failed to exhaust available review procedures. Accordingly, the prior decision was affirmed.
