National Industries for the Blind
B-409528.20: Jul 2, 2014
- Full Report:
National Industries for the Blind (NIB), of Alexandria, Virginia, protests the terms of request for proposals (RFP) No. GSQ02-14-R-SA0001, which was issued by the General Services Administration (GSA) for a full range of office supply items that will be available for order by participating federal agencies. NIB argues that the solicitation should be amended to reflect the protester's view that vendors who operate "brick and mortar" stores, that is physical stores where goods can be purchased, cannot comply with the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act, 41 U.S.C. 8501-8506, (JWOD Act).
We deny the protest.
