A firm requested further reconsideration of its dismissed protest against a solicitation for the supply of natural gas. GAO had held that the protester was ineligible for award, since it was not a manufacturer or regular dealer. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that it could submit an offer and certify its status as an eligible contractor under Small Business Administration regulations. GAO held that the protester failed to: (1) allege that it qualified as a manufacturer or regular dealer; and (2) present any evidence that warranted reversal or modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the second request for reconsideration was denied.
