[Request for Reconsideration of Protest of VA Purchase Order Cancellation]

B-254920.3: May 2, 1994

Office of Public Affairs
(202) 512-4800

A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) purchase order cancellation. GAO had held that VA properly: (1) suspended the protester's purchase agreement; (2) requested revised quotes from the bidders; and (3) selected the low bidder. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the awardee improperly offered a discount in its revised bid. GAO held that the protester should have challenged the awardee's revised bid in its original protest. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
