Laboratory Corporation of America
B-407108: Nov 5, 2012
Laboratory Corporation of America (LabCorp), of Burlington, North Carolina, protests the establishment of a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) with Quest Diagnostics Nichols Institute (Quest), of Chantilly, Virginia, under request for quotations (RFQ) No. VA-246-11-RQ-0321, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs for laboratory testing services for Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 6. The protester argues the agency failed to conduct an adequate analysis of the realism of Quest's proposed pricing. LabCorp also argues that the evaluation of its own technical proposal was unreasonable.
We deny the protest.
