A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protests of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant award. GAO had held that it would not review the protests, since they did not involve the award or proposed award of a procurement contract. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that procurement contracts may be awarded under the grant programs. GAO held that it would not review the protests, since the protester identified only grant awards as the subject of its protests. Accordingly, the original decision was affirmed.
