A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of an Air Force contract award for military family housing maintenance services. GAO had held that the Air Force properly evaluated the awardee's prior corporate experience and determined that its bid represented the best value to the government. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the Air Force improperly evaluated the awardee's bid under the experience factor, since the awardee could not have performed on five contracts that were awarded before its incorporation. GAO held that it would not consider the request for reconsideration, since it was based on arguments which could have been, but were not, presented during the original protest. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
