DIGEST: BECAUSE REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION SPECIFIES NO ERRORS OF LAW OR INFORMATION NOT PREVIOUSLY CONSIDERED AND SINCE COURT ACTION WILL CONSTITUTE FINAL ADJUDICATION OF ISSUES RAISED, GAO DENIES REQUEST TO AMEND PRIOR DISMISSAL AND TO HOLD PROTESTS IN ABEYANCE UNTIL FINAL COURT ACTION.

SEAFARERS, ET AL. - RECONSIDERATION:

THE FOUR NAMED PARTIES IN THE MATTER OF SEAFARERS INTERNATIONAL UNION OF NORTH AMERICA; COVE SHIPPING, INC.,; HUDSON WATERWAYS CORPORATION; ZAPATA TANKSHIPS, INC. (SEAFARERS, ET AL.), B-194574.2; B-194574.3; B-194574.4; B-194574.5, JUNE 21, 1979, 79-1 CPD , HAVE REQUESTED RECONSIDERATION OF THAT DECISION. WE DISMISSED THE PROTEST BECAUSE THE BASES THEREFOR ARE IN LITIGATION BEFORE THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AND THE COURT, IN DENYING PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR A PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION, DID NOT INDICATE ANY INTEREST IN OBTAINING OUR DECISION. THIS ACTION WAS TAKEN IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR BID PROTEST PROCEDURES, 4 C.F.R. SEC. 20.10 (1979).

THE PARTIES NOW ASK THAT WE AMEND OUR DECISION TO HOLD THE PROTESTS IN ABEYANCE UNTIL A FINAL COURT DECISION IS RENDERED IN THESE MATTERS. HOWEVER, THE REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION SPECIFIES NO ERRORS OF LAW OR INFORMATION NOT PREVIOUSLY CONSIDERED. MOREOVER, WE SEE NO REASON TO GRANT THE REQUEST BECAUSE A FINAL COURT ACTION HERE WOULD TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER ANY ACTION BY THIS OFFICE, BARRING US FROM FURTHER CONSIDERATION. SEE PULLMAN STANDARD, INC. - RECONSIDERATION, B-190254, JANUARY 11, 1978, 78-1 CPD 22.

THEREFORE, THE REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION IS DENIED.
