Information Ventures, Inc. protests the acquisition by Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine (NLM), of the maintenance and enhancement of the Chemical Carcinogenesis Research Information System (CCRIS) database from the General Services Administration's (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule (FSS). Information Ventures argues that the determination to purchase from the FSS was improper because the required services and subject matter do not fall within the scope of the selected FSS Special Item Number (SIN) 899-1--Environmental Planning Services and Documentation.
We deny the protests.
