A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of the Navy's rejection of its bid for an advanced missile launcher power supply. GAO had held that the Navy: (1) reasonably determined that the protester was nonresponsible, since it did not have the required design skills and knowledge to produce the item; and (2) was not required to reopen discussions after the preaward survey. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO failed to consider that the Navy did not raise its responsibility concerns during the discussions. GAO held that the Navy: (1) held meaningful discussions; and (2) became aware of the responsibility problem during a preaward survey. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
