A contract awardee requested reconsideration of a sustained protest of a General Services Administration (GSA) contract award. GAO had held that GSA: (1) failed to clearly state its minimum needs; and (2) misled the protester into offering a more expensive model, when one of its lower-cost models would have satisfied its minimum needs. In its request for reconsideration, the awardee contended that the protester was not sufficiently interested to protest the contract award. GAO held that the awardee failed to show any legal or factual errors that would warrant reversal or modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
