A firm requested reconsideration of a previous GAO decision which dismissed its protest of the refusal of the Small Business Administration to issue it a Certificate of Competency. Bid protest procedures require that requests for reconsiderations be filed within 10 days after the basis for reconsideration is known or should have been known. The firm did not file its request within that timeframe; therefore, the request was untimely and was dismissed.
