[Request for Reconsideration of Dismissed Protest of Army Corps of Engineers Alleged Contract Award]
B-233329.2: Dec 5, 1988
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against the Army Corps of Engineers' alleged reneging on a contract for field inspection and contract monitoring services. GAO had held that the protest concerned contract administration. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that it actually meant to protest the Corps' improper and unreasonable cancellation of the procurement. GAO: (1) considered the matter as a new protest; and (2) would not review the protest, which the protester untimely filed more than 10 working days after it should have become aware of the basis for protest. Accordingly, the protest was dismissed.
