B-406860: Sep 10, 2012
Integrity Supply, of Elkton, Maryland, protests the rejection of its proposal submitted in response to request for proposals (RFP) No. SPM1C1-10-R-0024, issued by the Defense Logistics Agency for electrical gloves. Integrity maintains that the agency improperly applied a domestic item restriction to reject its offer of gloves manufactured in Malaysia. In this regard, Integrity argues that the domestic item restriction does not apply because the gloves are not an item of "clothing."
We deny the protest.
