John Blood protests the issuance of a purchase order to URI Forestry Services, Inc. under request for quotations (RFQ) No. RFQ-RMAST-02-033, issued by the Forest Service, United States Department of Agriculture, for tree thinning and snagging services at the Nebraska National Forest. Blood challenges the evaluation of the firm's past performance record and award to a higher-priced vendor.

We deny the protest.
