The General Services Administration (GSA) requested reconsideration of a firm's sustained protest against the GSA cancellation of four solicitations for building operation and maintenance services. GAO had held that GSA: (1) did not have a reasonable basis for cancelling the solicitations; and (2) should reimburse the protester for its protest costs. In its request for reconsideration, GSA contended that: (1) GAO improperly determined that it did not have a reasonable basis for cancelling the solicitations; and (2) it failed to submit all pertinent protest information, since it did not anticipate the decision GAO rendered. GAO held that: (1) GSA did not submit relevant evidence that warranted modification or reversal of its previous decision; and (2) it would not consider new arguments, since GSA had the opportunity to submit relevant information during the initial protest. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
