A firm requested reconsideration of its dismissed protest against an Air Force contract award for reroofing. GAO had held that the Air Force properly refused to allow the low bidder to withdraw its bid because of an error, since: (1) it accepted award at the original price; and (2) its bid remained low after upward correction. In its request for reconsideration, the protester contended that the awardee's failure to present evidence of its alleged error made it unclear as to whether the corrected bid remained low. GAO would not reconsider the protest, since the: (1) awardee abandoned its claim of a bid error and accepted award at the original bid price; and (2) awardee's acceptance of the award was not prejudicial to itself or to other bidders. Accordingly, the request for reconsideration was denied.
