A firm requested reconsideration of a decision dismissing its protest as untimely, contending that the Army's solicitation specifications contained a contradiction which made it impossible to satisfy all of them. GAO held that the original protest was filed over 4 months after the closing date for receipt of initial proposals, and the protester did not submit any new evidence or legal arguments to show that the prior dismissal was in error. Accordingly, the prior decision was affirmed.
