A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protests of General Services Administration (GSA) solicitations for epoxy materials. GAO had held that: (1) it would not consider the first protest, since it involved matters of contract administration; and (2) the second protest had no merit, since GSA advised the protester of the acceptability of the awardee's alternative product. In its request for reconsideration, the protester: (1) contended that GAO ignored specific issues and responded only to those of its choosing; and (2) demanded documentation pertaining to its protests. GAO held that: (1) the protester did not clearly define any of its protest issues; (2) the protester failed to provide any evidence that warranted the reversal or modification of the original decision; and (3) there were no documents other than the protester's original protest and reconsideration request that were considered. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
