A company requested reconsideration of a decision which held that a solicitation should be cancelled and the requirement readvertised. Since the request did not provide additional information on the issue of whether the firm may be recognized to protest and failed to show any error of law, the original decision was affirmed. The decision that the company's bid was nonresponsive because it incorporated additional terms and conditions which did not conform to those in the solicitation was also affirmed, as was the decision that the solicitation was defective and should be cancelled because it lacked essential terms.
