A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of a General Services Administration (GSA) lease award. GAO had held that GSA did not abuse its discretion in not referring the protester's size status to the Small Business Administration (SBA) given its urgent need for space. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the contracting officer was afforded unbridled discretion in determining that there was an urgent need for space. GAO held that: (1) GSA was not required to refer the protester's size status to SBA prior to award; and (2) the protester did not present any new information that would warrant reversal or modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.

    We dismiss the protest because the protester, a not-for-profit entity, is not an interested party to challenge this sole-source award to an Alaska Native Corporation under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) program.
