Jim Swistowicz--Designated Employee Agent
B-400101: Jul 7, 2008
Jim Swistowicz--Designated Employee Agent, President of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Local 1808, protests the Department of the Army's issuance of request for proposals (RFP) No. W56HZV-08-R-A0005, for base support, supply, and maintenance operations at Sierra Army Depot, Herlong, California. Mr. Swistowicz asserts that this procurement--a public-private competition under Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-76--is improper because OMB is statutorily prohibited from requiring an agency to prepare for, undertake, continue, or complete a public-private competition.
We dismiss the protest on the basis that the protester is not an interested party.
