DIGEST Agency improperly placed an order based on a request for quotations that provided that final inspection and acceptance must be at the actual manufacturing facility based upon a quotation that provides for inspection and acceptance at facility where the supplies are to be packaged. CAMS asserts that Flinchbaughs quote is unacceptable because it failed to comply with the solicitations inspection and acceptance requirements. The base quantity amount was increased to 675 plates and the option quantity was increased to 675 plates. It was stated: FINAL INSPECTION AND ACCEPTANCE OF MATERIAL SHALL BE AT THE ACTUAL MANUFACTURING FACILITY. TECHNICAL INSPECTION IS REQUIRED. CONDITION INSPECTIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.
