[Request for Reconsideration of Dismissed Protest of GSA Contract Award for Transformer Replacement]
B-228491.2: Dec 3, 1987
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against a General Services Administration (GSA) contract award for transformer removal and replacement. GAO had held that the protester failed to state a valid basis for its protest. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO should have: (1) obtained an agency report; and (2) considered its original protest, which concerned the responsiveness of the awardee's bid. GAO held that the protester's: (1) failure to state a valid basis for protest precluded the necessity to obtain an agency report; and (2) protest concerned bidder responsibility, which it would not consider. Accordingly, the original decision was affirmed.
