URS Federal Services, Inc.--Costs
B-406140.4: Jul 17, 2012
URS Federal Services, Inc., of Manassas, Virginia, requests that we recommend that it be reimbursed the costs of filing and pursuing its protest challenging the award of a contract to VSE Corporation, of Alexandria, Virginia, under request for proposals (RFP) No. A-09-036, issued by the Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), for seized and forfeited personal property management and disposition services. We dismissed the protest after the agency advised our Office that it would take corrective action by canceling the awarded contract. URS argues that its protest was clearly meritorious and the agencys corrective action unduly delayed.
We grant URSs request in part and deny it in part.
