- Full Report:
DAV Prime, Inc., a service-disabled veteran-owned small business concern (SDVOSBC) protests the terms of solicitation No. AG-024B-S-07-0005, issued by the Department of Agriculture, U.S. Forest Service, for portable latrines. DAV argues that this work should have been reserved for SDVOSB companies. It contends a set-aside is required because the agency has violated the Small Business Act, as amended by 36 of the Veterans Benefits Act of 2003, Pub. L. No. 108-183, 117 Stat. 2651, 2662 (2003), 15 U.S.C. 657f (Supp. IV 2004), by failing to meet its stated goal of awarding 3 percent of its annual contracts to SDVOSBCs, and by failing to conduct a market survey to determine whether an SDVOSBC set-aside is appropriate. Protest at 2; Response to Motion to Dismiss at 1.
We dismiss the protest because it does not establish a valid basis for challenging the agency's action.
