A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against a Federal Aviation Administration solicitation. GAO had dismissed the protest because the protester untimely filed it more than 10 days after receiving notice of the agency's adverse action. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO should have considered the protest, since it mailed the protest several days before the deadline. GAO held that, since a date stamp indicated that it received the protest after the deadline, the protest was untimely. Accordingly, the original dismissal was affirmed.
