Aldevra, of Portage, Michigan, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) concern protests the terms of solicitation No. VA-69D-11-RQ-1170 (RQ-1170), issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for a tilting skillet/braising pan and one countertop electric griddle for the Federal Health Care Center in Chicago, Illinois. Aldevra also protests the terms of the VA's solicitation No. 693-11-4-179-0306 (179-0306), issued to procure two griddles and one food slicer for the VA Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Aldevra asserts that the agency improperly failed to comply with applicable statutes and regulations to determine if these procurements should be set aside for such firms.
We sustain the protests.
