[Request for Reconsideration of Dismissal of Protest Against DOE Exclusion of Proposal From Competitive Range]
B-225502.2: May 14, 1987
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of the dismissal of its protest against the Department of Energy's (DOE) exclusion of its proposal from the competitive range. GAO had dismissed the protest, which the protester untimely filed more than 10 days after it knew the basis for protest. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that DOE indicated that it was willing to meet with the protester to discuss possible reinstatement of the proposal but failed to arrange a meeting. GAO held that: (1) the protester knew the basis for protest, since the letter of rejection contained specific reasons for the rejection; and (2) there was no evidence to indicate that DOE agreed to initiate a review of its evaluation of the protester's proposal. Accordingly, the original decision was affirmed.
