The second low bidder under a solicitation requested reconsideration of a decision sustaining the low bidder's protest, noting that the low bidder omitted material portions of the solicitation package. The previous decision was affirmed because the bid was not unresponsive for failing to physically include all of the bid package so long as the material provisions were incorporated by reference.
