A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against an Air Force contract award for optical inspection systems. GAO had held that the Air Force: (1) properly excluded the awardee's bid from the 50-percent price factor imposed on U.S. Concerns; and (2) was not required to equalize whatever competitive advantage the awardee received as a foreign firm. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that: (1) GAO did not give the protester 10 days to file its response to the Air Force report; and (2) the Air Force improperly disregarded technical merit and awarded the contract solely on the basis of the awardee's low bid. GAO held that: (1) it properly dismissed the protest, since the Air Force provided clear evidence regarding the propriety of dismissing the protest; and (2) the protester untimely filed its protest regarding technical proposal evaluation. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
