Singleton Enterprises-GMT Mechanical, Joint Venture--Costs
B-310454.3, Mar 27, 2008
Singleton Enterprises-GMT Mechanical, Joint Venture, requests that our Office recommend that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reimburse Singleton's costs of filing and pursuing a protest, which our Office dismissed on the basis of corrective action proposed by the VA. Even though Singleton obtained corrective action in response to the protest, the firm asserts that it should be reimbursed its protest costs because an earlier protest raising the same issue in a similar situation was resolved in Singleton's favor, and therefore, in Singleton's view, this protest should not have been necessary.
We deny the protest.
