(202) 512-4800

The protester objected to the solicitation requirement restricting competition exclusively to small businesses, alleging that there were no small business manufacturers of the item and that none of the bidders qualified for the award. The allegation that the solicitation restricted competition was untimely since it was filed after bid opening. The allegation that the other bidders were not small businesses was properly for resolution by the Small Business Administration.
