A company requested reconsideration of its protest alleging that an award for carpeting was improper because the awardee's intended supplier was not in compliance with equal opportunity and affirmative action requirements. Since the intended subcontractor has 120 days after the award to develop an acceptable program, the request for reconsideration was denied.
