Woodcrest Ace Hardware/MSC Industrial Supply Company (ACE/MSC), of Riverside, California (Ace), and Melville, New York (MSC), protests the issuance of a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to W.W. Grainger, Inc., of Lake Forest, Illinois, under solicitation No. 6FLS-A6-08999-MAS-I, issued by the General Services Administration (GSA) to provide hardware products to three U.S. Marine Corps bases in the western U.S. region. ACE/MSC asserts that GSA improperly determined that it was ineligible for award and failed to hold adequate discussions.
We deny the protest.
