A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of a Navy contract award for aircraft testing systems repair and modification. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed its protest after award. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO overlooked the fact that the awardee failed to submit prices on all line items, thereby giving the awardee an unfair competitive advantage. GAO held that the protest was without merit, since: (1) there was no basis to doubt that the awardee's bid would result in the lowest cost to the government; and (2) the protester failed to show any legal or factual errors that would warrant reversal or modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
