A firm requested reconsideration of a decision which denied its protest regarding the Corps of Engineers' intention to continue a total small business set-aside for dredging services. GAO denied the original protest without considering the record because, on its face, the protest lacked legal merit. GAO held that the requester failed to raise new issues of fact or to demonstrate errors of law in its request for reconsideration which would cause a review of the initial decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
