[Request for Reconsideration of Protest of Air Force Contract Award for Recovery Sequencers]
B-258814.3: Oct 6, 1995
- Full Report:
A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of an Air Force contract award for recovery sequencers, contending that GAO erred in its prior decision. GAO had held that the protester must demonstrate that: (1) it had been prejudiced when the Air Force waived the qualification requirement for another offeror; and (2) the awardee was able to offer an inferior product after the Air Force relaxed its testing standard. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that it should not be required to demonstrate prejudice or that the Air Force modified the contract award for the awardee. GAO held that the protester failed to show any legal or factual errors that would warrant reversal or modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
