A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of an Air Force contract award for actuators. GAO had held that the Air Force justified its sole-source award, since it reasonably determined that only certain equipment met its minimum needs. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the: (1) Air Force's cancellation of an original specification indicated that the awardee was unqualified to produce the equipment; and (2) reimbursement provision in the awardee's contract prejudiced future awards for the equipment. GAO held that: (1) the protester failed to show that there was any error of law or fact in the original decision; (2) the specification revision was unrelated to the equipment's configuration; and (3) there was nothing improper in the contract's reimbursement provision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
