Reconsideration was requested of the denial of a protest of a contract award involving a sole-source solicitation. The issuance of the sole-source solicitation as a followon to competitive procurement was not evidence of fraud in the earlier procurement. The Department of Justice's refusal to investigate antitrust allegations against a competitor did not change the fact that it was the appropriate agency for consideration of such matters.
