A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of an Army contract award. GAO had held that there was no evidence that the awardee's bid was mathematically unbalanced. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that: (1) the awardee would not comply with the Service Contract Act (SCA); (2) two line item bid prices were overstated and understated, respectively; and (3) the awardee was not responsible. GAO held that: (1) it would not consider the awardee's compliance with SCA, since that was a matter of contract administration; (2) the protester untimely filed its protest of the awardee's alleged underpricing more than 10 days after it knew the basis of protest; and (3) the protester should have submitted information pertaining to the awardee's responsibility at the time of its original protest. 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.
