Hydroid LLC protests issuance of a purchase order to Brooke Ocean Technology USA, Inc. (BOT-USA) under request for quotations (RFQ) No. NCNJ1000-6-00001, a 100-percent small business set-aside issued by the Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), for an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). Hydroid asserts that BOT-USA was ineligible for the order as a small business.
We sustain the protest.
