A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of a Defense Commercial Communications Office (DECCO) license agreement, contending that GAO did not address its original protest that: (1) the sole-source solicitations contemplated by the agreement will violate small-purchase requirements; and (2) DECCO did not provide sufficient explanation of the agreement to bidders. GAO held that: (1) the protester prematurely speculated that DECCO would not comply with small-purchase requirements; and (2) DECCO properly responded to the protester's questions at the same time it responded to other bidders' questions. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed.
