A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) contract award for real estate closing services. GAO had held that HUD: (1) reasonably evaluated the protester's technical proposal; (2) held meaningful discussions with the protester; and (3) performed a reasonable cost-technical tradeoff analysis. In its request for reconsideration, the protester repeated its original protest allegations. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to present any evidence that warranted reversal of the original decision; and (2) was not prejudiced when HUD failed to timely notify GAO of its decision to authorize contract performance. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
