DIGEST Protest that agency improperly canceled presolicitation notice of intent to procure services under small business set-aside solicitation in order to instead solicit quotations from Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) vendors is denied. Where agency reasonably determined that such services were available under the FSS. FEMA learned that the services were available under the FSS. Which is not an FSS vendor. That protest was denied. Information Ventures argues that the agency's purchase from the FSS is contrary to public policy and. That provision generally requires an agency to set aside acquisitions for small businesses where there is a reasonable expectation of receiving fair market price offers from at least two responsible small business concerns.
