Request for Reconsideration

A firm requested reconsideration of a GAO decision in which GAO found the firm's protest to be untimely filed. The firm had objected to a solicitation being issued on a brand name or equal basis. A protest to the agency and a subsequent protest to GAO were found untimely filed. The GAO protest was received more than 10 days after the knowledge of the initial adverse agency action following the protest to the agency. The initial adverse action was the receipt of proposals without an amendment to the specifications, not the notification of an untimely filed protest, as the protester contended. The issue involved was not a matter so significant to procurement practices as to merit consideration notwithstanding its untimeliness. The request for reconsideration was denied.
