A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protests of the Army Corps of Engineers' cancellation of a solicitation for mail and messenger services. GAO had held that the protester failed to timely file its comments on the agency report. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the decision was arbitrary. GAO held that the protester: (1) was cognizant of its responsibility to timely respond to the agency report; and (2) failed to express continued interest in the protest. Accordingly, the prior decision was affirmed.
