PROCUREMENT - Bid Protests - GAO procedures - GAO decisions - Reconsideration DIGEST: Second request for reconsideration is denied where it establishes no legal or factual basis for reversing or modifying earlier decisions.

Systems & Processes Engineering Corp.-- Second Request for Reconsideration:

Systems and Processes Engineering Corp. (SPEC) seeks a second reconsideration of our decision, Systems & Processes Eng'g Corp., B-234142, May 10, 1989, 89-1 CPD Para. 441, denying its protest of an Air Force award to Comsystems under request for proposals No. F41608-88-R 5375, for the expansion of an aircraft engine management system. SPEC's first request for reconsideration was denied because it presented no factual or legal basis warranting modification of the original decision. Systems & Processes Eng'g Corp.-- Request for Recon., B-234142.2, Aug. 30, 1989, 89-2 CPD Para. 191. We deny the second request for the same reason.

SPEC's contentions either concern matters which do not impact on the legal validity of the award, reiterate its earlier positions with regard to alleged violations of various procurement regulations, or express its disagreement with our decisions as they relate to those alleged violations. To be considered, a request for reconsideration must establish that a previous decision contained errors of fact or law that would warrant its reversal or modification. Bid Protest Regulations, 4 C.F.R. Sec. 21.12(a) (1989). This request does not meet this standard. Systems & Processes Eng'g Corp.-- Second Request for Recon., B-231420.3, June 30, 1988, 88-1 CPD Para. 620.

The request is denied.
