- Full Report:
USA Fabrics, Inc. protests the terms of solicitation No. CT1696-05, issued by Federal Prison Industries (FPI) for T-shirt fabric. USA Fabrics asserts that the solicitation, issued as a total small business set-aside, instead should have been set aside for HUBZone small businesses concerns. USA Fabrics also asserts that the solicitation is unduly restrictive of competition because the agency improperly required contractors to maintain a certain level of consignment fabric inventory.
We sustain the protest in part and deny it in part.
