The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) requested reconsideration of a decision sustaining a firm's bid rejection protest, contending that the decision was inconsistent with the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984. GAO held that: (1) the reconsideration request was untimely; (2) the awardee's bid was not prejudicial to higher priced offerers; and (3) DLA obtained open and fair competition. Accordingly, the prior decision was affirmed.
