[Request for Reconsideration of Protest of Navy Subcontract Award]

B-258392.2: Feb 2, 1995

A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of a Navy subcontract award. GAO had held that the subcontract award was not by or for the government, and therefore was outside of its jurisdiction. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO should consider the protest, since the Navy was significantly involved in the procurement. GAO held that the Navy: (1) only imposed specifications requiring the purchase of a specific item; and (2) was not involved in all substantive aspects of the procurement. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
