A firm and the Department of Energy (DOE) requested reconsideration of a sustained protest of a Department of Energy (DOE) management and operations subcontract. GAO had held that the protester improperly awarded the contract to a subcontractor and recommended that the protester reopen the competition based on its changed requirements. In its request for reconsideration, the protester reiterated its initial arguments and expressed its disagreement with the original decision. GAO held that: (1) the protester for violated the terms of its own procurement; and (2) it would not modify its recommendation for reopening the competition, since there were significant differences between the government's requirements and those stated in the solicitation. Accordingly, the original decision was affirmed and the request for reconsideration was denied.
