B-292967, Jan 7, 2004
First Enterprise protests the cancellation after bid opening of invitation for bids (IFB) No. 600-249-03RT, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for the construction of a prosthetic and eye clinic center as part of the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, Los Angeles, California. First Enterprise, the bidder in line for award under the IFB, maintains that the agency had no compelling reason to cancel and convert the IFB to a negotiated procurement.
We deny the protest.
