[Request for Reconsideration of Dismissed Protest of GSA Decision to Perform Janitorial Services In-House]
B-236764.2: Nov 7, 1989
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against the General Services Administration's (GSA) decision to perform janitorial services in-house. GAO had held that it would not review the protest, since the protester filed an administrative appeal regarding GSA revisions of the government cost estimate. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO should consider its protest, since the cost revisions constituted adverse action against its appeal. GAO held that the protester failed to exhaust the available administrative review process to challenge the cost comparison. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed.
