A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against an Air Force contract award for delicatessen supply and operation. GAO had held that the protester failed to file its comments within 10 days after receiving the Air Force report on the protest. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that it failed to timely file comments because it was confused by the filing requirements and misinterpreted the filing deadline. GAO would not consider the protest, since the protester's alleged confusion regarding the filing requirements did not excuse its failure to timely file comments. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
