Keeton Corrections, Inc.--Costs
B-293348.3: Oct 25, 2004
Keeton Corrections, Inc. requests that we recommend the amount it should be allowed to recover from the Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), for filing and pursuing its protest in Keeton Corrections, Inc., B-293348, Mar. 4, 2004, 2004 CPD. In that decision, we sustained Keeton's protest against BOP's award of a contract to provide a residential Comprehensive Sanction Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and we recommended, among other things, that BOP reimburse the protester's cost of filing and pursuing its protest. In this regard, citing the requirement in our Bid Protest Regulation, 4 C.F.R. 21.8(f)(1) (2004), our decision directed as follows: "The protester should submit its certified claim for such costs, detailing the time expended and costs incurred, directly with the agency within 60 days of receiving this decision." Keeton Corrections, Inc., supra, at 12.
We dismiss the request because the protester did not file its certified claim for costs within 60 days of receipt of our decision.
