[Request for Reconsideration of Protest of HUD Contract Award for Real Estate Closing Services]

B-261164.2: Nov 24, 1995

Office of Public Affairs
(202) 512-4800

A firm requested reconsideration of its denied protest of a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) contract award for real estate closing services. GAO had held that HUD: (1) reasonably evaluated the protester's technical proposal; (2) held meaningful discussions with the protester; and (3) performed a reasonable cost-technical tradeoff analysis. In its request for reconsideration, the protester repeated its original protest allegations. GAO held that the protester: (1) failed to present any evidence that warranted reversal of the original decision; and (2) was not prejudiced when HUD failed to timely notify GAO of its decision to authorize contract performance. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.

    We dismiss the protest because the protester, a not-for-profit entity, is not an interested party to challenge this sole-source award to an Alaska Native Corporation under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) 8(a) program.
