The protesters objected to the cancellation of a request for proposals being procured as a total set-aside for small business. The agency's determination to set aside procurement for small business concerns was an internal administrative matter. The ASPR did not require that a contracting officer's decision that small business restricted advertising was not feasible be afforded finality in the face of disagreement by agency superiors. Notwithstanding the protester's proposal preparation and negotiation efforts, the termination of a small business set-aside procurement which utilized the negotiation procedure and reinstatement of the procurement pursuant to small business restricted advertising procedure was appropriate.
