[Request for Reconsideration of Denial of Protest Against Proposed FAA Contract Award]
B-222432.2: Sep 4, 1986
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of a proposed Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) contract award. The protester had contended that there were a wide range of deficiencies in both the factual basis for the FAA evaluation and the evaluators' exercised discretion. GAO had held that the FAA evaluation was proper and consistent with the stated evaluation criteria. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the FAA evaluators must have found that there was an error in its proposal since they used figures from another proposal in rating its proposal. The protester also claimed reimbursement for bid and protest preparation costs. GAO found that, since the request for reconsideration did not contain a detailed statement of the factual or legal grounds for such action or specify any error of law or information not previously considered, the protester did not provide a basis for reconsideration. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration and the claim were denied.
