A firm requested reconsideration of a decision in which GAO dismissed the firm's protest that it was not allowed sufficient time to provide the Small Business Administration (SBA) with the information required to make a Certificate of Competency (COC) determination after the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) found the firm nonresponsible. The firm asked GAO to reconsider the decision because GAO did not address its allegation that DLA improperly assessed its delinquency ratio on existing contracts when making the responsibility determination. GAO held that it would not: (1) review the DLA assessment of the firm's delinquency ratio; and (2) consider a challenge to a contracting officer's determination that a small business was nonresponsible where the business failed to file a timely COC application with the SBA. Accordingly, the prior decision was affirmed.
