Management Solutions, L.C. d/b/a EssTech Engineering protests the cancellation of request for proposals (RFP) No. W52H09-06-R-0314, issued by the Department of the Army, U.S. Army Materiel Command, for 809 indicator control subassemblies. Management Solutions argues that the agency did not have a reasonable basis for canceling the solicitation and also challenges the agency's concurrent decision to obtain the requirement from Federal Prison Industries, Inc. (FPI), arguing that the RFP instead should have been set aside for Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) small businesses.
We deny the protest.
