United Way of the National Capital Area
B-311235: May 16, 2008
The United Way of the National Capital Area protests the selection of Global Impact by the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA) to serve as the principal combined fund organization (PCFO) for the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) activities in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The United Way argues that the CFCNCA did not conduct a fair and reasonable competition in selecting Global Impact as the PCFO for the 2008 CFC campaign year. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) argues that the CFCNCA is not a federal agency, and that our Office therefore does not have jurisdiction to hear this protest. As discussed below, we agree with OPM that our Office does not have jurisdiction to hear the protest and dismiss it on that basis.
We dismiss the protest.
