Moog Inc. protests the decision of the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) to issue request for proposals (RFP) No. DAAH23-03-R-0668, for the overhaul and upgrade of UH-60 pitch trim actuators, as a small business set-aside. Moog, the original equipment manufacturer of the actuator, contends that only an approved source may perform the necessary work, and that the agency lacked a reasonable basis for setting aside the procurement because no small businesses have been approved to perform the requirement.
We deny the protest.
