A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of an Air Force solicitation for a dust collection system. GAO had held that the protester failed to file its comments within 10 days of receiving the agency report. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO granted an extension to the initial comment period until it received requested documents. GAO held that the protester: (1) did not provide any evidence that GAO granted the filing extension; (2) failed to diligently pursue its request for additional documents; and (3) did not present any evidence that warranted modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
