Voith Hydro, Inc. of York, Pennsylvania protests the terms of request for proposals (RFP) No. 09SP200017 (-0017), issued by the Department of the Interior, for generator and excitation systems for the Folsom Power Plant at the Folsom Dam, Sacramento County, California, and RFP No. 09SP200121 (-0121), issued by the Department of the Interior, for an excitation system for the Nimbus Power Plant at the Nimbus Dam, Sacramento County, California. Voith Hydro argues that the solicitations, which were issued as negotiated acquisitions under part 15 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and include certain clauses set forth in part 36 of the FAR pertaining to construction contracts, should have been issued in accordance with the terms of part 12 of the FAR, governing the solicitation and award of contracts for commercial items.
We deny the protests.
