The protester objected to the cancellation of a solicitation after bid opening and the subsequent purchase of the item from a contractor listed on the Federal Supply Schedule. The agency's cancellation of the solicitation after bid opening was proper since it was discovered at that time that the item covered in the solicitation was on the Federal Supply Schedule from which the agency was required to make purchase.
