[Request for Reconsideration of Protest Against Interior Bond Requirement]
B-244445.2: Jul 29, 1991
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconderation of its dismissed protest against a Department of the Interior bond requirement. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed its protest after bid opening. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that it timely filed its protest, since it received an amendment to the solicitation 1 day prior to bid opening and filed its protest within 10 days. GAO held that the protester: (1) was obligated to include in its original protest all the information needed to demonstrate its timeliness; and (2) could not introduce in a reconsideration request information regarding the timeliness of its original protest. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed.
