A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of the Air Force's exercise of a contract option for Global Positioning System receiver sets. GAO had held that the protester's: (1) initial protest was factually and legally insufficient; and (2) supplemental protest was untimely. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the: (1) facsimile copy of the contract modification was insufficient to establish the basis of its supplemental protest; and (2) Air Force was not justified in exercising the contract option. GAO held that the protester failed to provide any evidence that warranted reversal or modification of the original decision. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
