A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of an Air Force nonresponsibility determination. GAO had held that it would not review the protest, since the Small Business Administration (SBA) was responsible for reviewing the protester's nonresponsibility determination. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the Air Force improperly determined that it was nonresponsible. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to show any legal or factual errors that would warrant reversal or modification of the original decision; and (2) should seek to avail itself of SBA certificate of competency procedures. Accordingly, the original decision was affirmed.
