A firm requested reconsideration of its partially dismissed and denied protest of a General Services Administration (GSA) contract award for moving services. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed after bid opening its protest regarding the formula GSA used to calculate the awardee's bid prices. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO should have considered its protest under the significant-issue exception. GAO held that it would not consider the protest under the significant-issue exception, since the issue was not of widespread interest to the procurement community. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
