[Request for Reconsideration of Protest of Navy Contract Award]
B-247052.2: Sep 28, 1992
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of a Navy contract award for computer logistics services. GAO had held that: (1) the awardee reasonably presumed that a named technician would be available for a specific position; and (2) the use of the technician's name as one of five technicians did not materially affect competing proposals' evaluations. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that: (1) the technician's rejection of the awardee's second offer was legally a rejection of the earlier offer, which he had accepted; and (2) the technician affirmed that he assumed that the earlier offer had been terminated by the later offer. GAO held that the protester: (1) could have presented the employment information at the time of the original protest and, therefore, the information was not a valid reason for reconsideration; and (2) did not address the lack of prejudice denial in its request and, therefore, presented no basis for reconsideration. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
