Midwest Tube Fabricators, Inc., of Sterling Heights, Michigan, protests the issuance of a purchase order to E.W. Packaging Corporation, Inc. (EWPC), of Deerfield Beach, Florida, under request for quotations (RFQ) Nos. SPM7M4-12-T-9441 and SPM7M4-12-T-9460, issued by the Defense Logistics Agency, for a quantity of bent, seamless, stainless steel tube. Midwest asserts that based on EWPC's comparatively lower price, the item offered by EWPC could not have met the solicitation specifications, and, therefore, issuance of the purchase order to EWPC was improper.
We dismiss the protest.
