A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest against any award of an Air Force contract for on-call computer maintenance services. GAO had held that the: (1) Air Force reasonably excluded the protester from competition; and (2) protester's allegations regarding improper termination of its contract concerned the contracting agency. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO failed to review all of its allegations. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to provide evidence to support its allegations regarding conflict of interest and bias; (2) untimely filed its protest regarding a bidder's responsibility; and (3) merely reiterated arguments it raised in its original protest. Accordingly, the reconsideration request was denied.
