A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against a General Services Administration contract award for small package express transportation services . GAO had held that the protester untimely filed its protest, since it failed to diligently pursue information to establish a basis for protest. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that: (1) the awardee did not intend to meet the contract requirements; and (2) GAO erroneously concluded that it failed to diligently pursue information related to the matter. GAO: (1) affirmed the original decision regarding its dismissal of the protester's bid as untimely; and (2) would not consider the protest regarding the awardee's intent to meet its contractual obligations. Accordingly, the dismissal was affirmed.
