A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of the Navy's nonresponsibility determination. GAO had held that the Small Business Administration had sole jurisdiction to review the Navy's responsibility determination under the small business set-aside. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the Navy: (1) did not follow regulatory standards in determining its responsibility; (2) failed to give it an opportunity to respond to the nonresponsibility determination; and (3) did not provide copies of certain documents. GAO held that the protester failed to provide a valid basis for reconsidering the protest. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
