DIGEST Protest that agency established unreasonably short deadline to respond to request for quotations issued under the Federal Supply Schedule program is denied. Where protester essentially admits it could have timely responded but chose not to. The SBA's estimate of the cost of services was approximately $175. The requisition therefore was not approved. Submissions were due by Monday. Its requests were denied. Which was the last day of the fiscal year. She explained that the SBA was having difficulties with its e-mail server. Which was timely received by the SBA at 12:50 p.m. on September 30. Which is governed instead by FAR Subpart 8.4. /1/ Computer Prods. We will review the agency's actions to ensure that the evaluation is fair and reasonable and consistent with the terms of the RFQ.
