A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of a Department of Justice contract award. GAO had dismissed the protest because the protester failed to file comments in response to the agency report within 10 days of receiving the report. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that it had submitted its comments within the 10-day limit. GAO held that there was no evidence that the protester submitted its comments by facsimile, as claimed, within the 10-day limit. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
