A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of an Air Force solicitation. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after it learned of initial adverse action on its agency-level protest. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that its late filing was due to incorrect information it received from the Air Force and GAO. GAO held that it would not consider the reconsideration request, since the protester should have been aware of the bid protest procedures which are published and readily available. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
