Lisa Hartman--Designated Employee Agent
B-311247: May 6, 2008
Lisa Hartman-Designated Employee Agent1 protests the award of a contract to DWBH Services, Inc. under request for proposals (RFP) No. VA-786-07-RP-0220, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), National Cemetery Administration for grounds maintenance services for the Chattanooga National Cemetery. The protester argues that the agency is violating Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-76 by directly converting functions performed by federal employees to contractor performance without conducting a cost comparison.
We deny the protest.
