[Protest of DPSC Contract Award for Utility Pails]
B-239898: Sep 18, 1990
- Full Report:
A firm protested a Defense Personnel Support Center (DPSC) contract award for utility pails, contending that: (1) DPSC failed to apply a small disadvantaged business (SDB) preference to its proposal; and (2) the awardee inappropriately disclosed its price. GAO held that: (1) the protester was not entitled to SDB preference, since a large business supplied it with manufactured products; and (2) allegations regarding price disclosure were for the Department of Justice to consider. Accordingly, the protest was denied.
