A firm requested reconsideration of the dismissal of its protest of a contract award for ocean common carrier service issued under a Military Sealift Command multiple-award request for proposals. The protester argued that it raised issues not considered by the court and, therefore, the refusal to decide these issues on the theory of collateral estoppel was erroneous and that dismissal of the protest was contrary to bid protest procedures. However, GAO held that although the protester was not a party to the litigation, the material issues considered by the court were the same as those raised in the protest. Further, GAO held that, where a request for reconsideration fails to present facts or legal arguments to show that the previous decision was erroneous, the prior decision is affirmed.
