A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest under a Federal Highway Administration (FHwA) solicitation. GAO had held that the protester untimely filed its protest. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that: (1) FHwA misled it and did not inform it of protest filing requirements; and (2) GAO should consider its protest as a significant issue, or because it was late for good cause. GAO held that the: (1) protester was constructively on notice of its bid protest regulations, even though FHwA did not inform it of the filing requirements; and (2) protest was not late for good cause and did not present a significant procurement issue. Accordingly, the original decision was affirmed.
