A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protests of several Navy solicitations for landing gear components. GAO had held that the alternative licensing agreement with the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) was proper, since the: (1) bidders were responsible for demonstrating the acceptability of their alternate products; and (2) OEM was in the best position to gauge the acceptability of alternate products. GAO held that 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.
