A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of the General Services Administration's (GSA) refusal to accept its bid. GAO had held that the original protest was untimely, since the protester filed it more than 10 working days after it became aware of the basis for protest. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GSA failed to supply it with the information it needed to protest. GAO held that the protester: (1) should have been aware of its bid protest regulations; and (2) did not provide a basis for reconsideration. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
