Counsel for the protester requested reconsideration of a decision which dismissed as untimely its protest against rejection of the firm's bid. The prior decision dismissing the protest was affirmed because: the procuring activity was not required to inform the protester of the GAO 10-day filing limitation, consultation with counsel was not a valid basis to extend the filing time for the protest, and the circumstances of the protest did not otherwise constitute a compelling reason requisite to showing of "good cause" for GAO consideration of an untimely protest.
