A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of a General Services Administration (GSA) procurement for the lease of office space. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest regarding alleged solicitation improprieties. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO waived the right to dismiss the protest as untimely, since it opened a file on the protest and directed GSA to submit a report on the challenged procurement. GAO held that the protester failed to state a valid basis for reconsideration. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed.
