Protest against Procurement Policies and Procedures
B-187968: Sep 28, 1977
- Full Report:
The protester objected to the procurement practices and policies used by the Army in placing a delivery order under a Basic Ordering Agreement. Basic Ordering Agreements cannot be used to exclude surplus spare parts once the procuring activity has been made aware of a potential source of supply. The publication of a synopsis in the Commerce Business Daily must precede ordering under Basic Ordering Agreements to allow potential bidders an opportunity to compete.
