CES Industries, Inc. (CES) of Farmingdale, New York, protests the award of a contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to Arjo Huntleigh, Inc. (Arjo) of Addison, Illinois, under request for quotations (RFQ) No. VA-248-09-RQ-0322, for a contractor to provide and install commercially-available safe patient handling device monitoring systems. CES, which has a teaming agreement with a service-disabled veteran, essentially asserts that the VA improperly conducted the procurement on an unrestricted basis rather than make award to CES as a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) concern.
We dismiss the protest in part and deny it in part.
