Partnership for Response and Recovery
B-298443.4, Dec 18, 2006
Partnership for Response and Recovery (PaRR) protests the corrective action taken by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in response to the protest of Alltech, Inc. of FEMA's award of contracts under request for proposals (RFP) No. HSFEHQ-06-R-0013 to PaRR and Michael Baker, Jr. Corporation for housing inspection services (HIS). The RFP contemplated award of multiple indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts for HIS, which involves providing individual housing inspectors and managing a program to deploy and oversee the inspectors when a disaster occurs. PaRR argues that the agency's revised corrective action, which consists of reopening discussions and requesting completely revised proposals, unfairly favors Alltech and is an abuse of agency discretion.
We deny the protest.
