A firm requested reconsideration of the dismissal of its untimely protest against two State Department solicitations for maintenance services, contending that it: (1) could not timely file a copy of its protest with the agency because of the agency's remote location; and (2) was unable to ascertain the correct address for the agency's protest copy. GAO held that: (1) it would not waive its timeliness requirement simply because of the agency's location; and (2) the protester incorrectly addressed its protest. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed.
