Aldevra, of Portage, Michigan, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) concern, protests the terms of solicitation Nos. VA246-12-Q-3077, VA247-12-Q-0986, 565-12-3-5090-0018, 565-12-3-1020-0102, and FedBid Buy Nos. 393886 and 383489, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for miscellaneous kitchen equipment for VA Medical and Health Care Centers at various locations throughout the United States. Aldevra also protests the VA's award of a contract to Glaser Direct, Inc., under solicitation No. 512-12-3-4894-0128, for an ice machine and dispenser.
Kingdomware Technologies, of Waldorf, Maryland, an SDVOSB concern, protests the VA's award of contract No. VA24612F4632 to Live Process, Inc. for computer software and training. Both protesters assert that the agency improperly failed to comply with the requirements of the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006, 38 U.S.C. 8127-8128 (2006) (the VA Act), and its implementing regulations, to determine whether these procurements should be set aside for SDVOSB (or veteran-owned small business (VOSB)) concerns.
We sustain the protests.
