City Chemical LLC protests the award of contracts to Nation Ford Chemical Company under two solicitations issued by the U.S. Army Operations Support Command, request for proposals (RFP) No. DAAA09-03-R-3017 for solvent yellow dye 33 and RFP No. DAAA09-03-R-3019 for solvent green dye 3. With regard to both RFPs, City Chemical contends that the agency erroneously determined that it intended to furnish a foreign source end item and, as a consequence, improperly added a Buy American Act (BAA) differential to its price.
We deny the protests.
