A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest of a Navy contract award. GAO had held that: (1) although its bid prices might be lower than the applicable wage rates, the awardee was still obligated to pay those rates; and (2) it would not review the Navy's affirmative determination of the awardee's responsibility. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that GAO erred in its decision, since: (1) the Navy failed to make a responsibility determination; and (2) it failed to consider other allegations concerning the waiver of bonding requirements and unbalanced bidding. GAO held that: (1) the Navy made a responsibility determination by awarding the contract to the awardee; (2) it would not consider the Navy's post-award lowering of the bonding requirements, since that was a matter of contract administration; and (3) there was no evidence that the awardee's bid price was unbalanced. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
