- Full Report:
American Medical Equipment Company (AMEC), of Houston, Texas, protests the terms of request for proposals (RFP) No. VA256-12-R-0059, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for home oxygen services for beneficiaries in Veterans Integrated Service Network 16 (VISN 16). AMEC, a small business, contends that the VA failed to perform adequate market research to ascertain the interest and capability of small businesses to perform the solicitation requirements, and that the solicitation should have been set-aside, in its entirety, for small business concerns.
We deny the protest.
