Lockmasters Security Institute, Inc. (LSI) protests the terms of request for quotations (RFQ) No. HSCG23-07-Q-PTC006, issued by the Department of Homeland Security, United States Coast Guard, for technical support services for the agency's Office of Security Policy and Management. The protester argues that the agency's decision to obtain these services under Schedule 84 of the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule (FSS)--as opposed to procuring them under Schedule 69, which was used to procure these services previously--was improper, and further argues that the solicitation is restrictive of competition because the decision to procure under Schedule 84 precludes LSI from competing for the work.
We deny the protest.
