The claimant protested the placement of an order for lettering sheets, contending that the purchase order was in excess of the maximum order limitation (MOL) under the Federal Supply Scheduling. The agency acknowledged that there was merit to the protest and that the protest was timely, but the protest was denied because of the agency view that the MOL applied to single items and no purchase of a single item exceeded the MOL.
