A firm protested the General Services Administration's (GSA) rejection of its bids for gases, contending that GSA and the Small Business Administration (SBA) failed to: (1) consider a report which concluded that the protester was capable of performing the contract; and (2) reconsider their nonresponsibility determinations based on new information submitted after the contract award. GAO held that the: (1) report did not rebut or contradict information that SBA denied the protester a certificate of competency; and (2) protester did not provide any new evidence to GSA or SBA to reconsider before the contract award. Accordingly, the protests were denied.
