A firm requested reconsideration of the dismissal of its untimely protest against an allegedly restrictive Army solicitation for periscopes. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed its protest more than 10 days after the Army published its intention to procure the items. Upon reconsideration, GAO determined that the protest was timely, since it involved solicitation improprieties and the protester filed it prior to bid opening. GAO held that there was no legal merit to the protest, since the procurement was for a defense mobilization item and the Army was required to restrict it to domestic sources. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
