Aldevra, of Portage, Michigan, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) concern, protests the terms of solicitation Nos. 554-12-2-081-0038 and VA-248-12-Q-0823, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for, respectively, refrigerators for the Eastern Colorado Healthcare System, Denver, Colorado, and for miscellaneous kitchen equipment for the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System. The protester asserts that the agency improperly failed to comply with the requirement of the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006, 38 U.S.C. §§ 8127-8128 (2006) (the VA Act), and its implementing regulations to determine whether these procurements should be set aside for SDVOSB (or veteran-owned small business (VOSB)) concerns.
We sustain the protests.
