A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against a Navy contract award for computer services. GAO had held that the protest was academic, since the Navy: (1) terminated the contract; and (2) intended to resolicit best and final offers based on the revised specifications. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that: (1) the Navy's corrective action was improper; and (2) it was entitled to reimbursement for its bid and protest preparation costs. GAO held that the: (1) Navy's termination of the contract rendered the protest academic; and (2) protester was not entitled to reimbursement for its bid and protest preparation costs. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed and the claim for costs denied.
