B-406262: Mar 21, 2012
Crosstown Courier Service, Inc. of Chicopee, Massachusetts, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) concern, protests the terms of request for quotations (RFQ) No. VA261-11-RQ-1653, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for commercial courier services to transport diagnostic blood and urine specimens on a set schedule from outlying VA laboratories to the main VA laboratories in Palo Alto and Livermore, California. Crosstown asserts that the agency improperly failed to comply with the requirement 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 this procurement should be set aside for SDVOSB (or veteran-owned small business (VOSB)) concerns.
We sustain the protest.
