A firm protested the General Services Administration's (GSA) rejection of its bid for office space, contending that: (1) it was prejudiced; and (2) GSA treated the offerors differently. The protester also requested reconsideration of the dismissal of its prior protest. GAO held that: (1) the protester was not prejudiced by GSA actions; (2) GSA reasonably rejected the protester's bid as technically unacceptable; and (3) GSA did not treat offerors disparately. GAO also held that there was no basis for reconsidering the protester's earlier protest. Accordingly, the protest and the request for reconsideration were denied. The protester filed an amended protest contending that GSA improperly selected an awardee. GAO held that the protest was premature. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed. The protester then requested reconsideration of the dismissed amended protest. GAO held that the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
