A firm requested a second reconsideration of its dismissed protest of an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) solicitation. GAO had held that the protester: (1) untimely filed its protest of its exclusion from the competitive range; and (2) was not sufficiently interested to protest the extension of the bid acceptance period. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that IRS: (1) improperly permitted the bid extension before its exclusion from the competitive range; and (2) should have permitted it to extend its bid. GAO held that the protester failed to provide any evidence that warranted reversal of the original decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
