A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of an Army contract award for automatic data processing equipment and software. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed its protest against the Army's improper evaluation of the awardee's bid. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that even though its protest was untimely, it should be considered under the significant-issue exception, since the contracting officer's actions were improper. 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.
