Del-Jen Education & Training Group, of Phoenix, Arizona, protests the determination by the Department of Labor (DOL) not to exclude Res-Care, Inc., of Louisville, Kentucky, from the competition under solicitation No. DOLJ09UA00025, for establishment and operation of the Pinellas Job Corps Center in St. Petersburg, Florida. Del-Jen essentially asserts that Res-Care had an unfair competitive advantage by virtue of its being permitted to continue performing the contract initially awarded it under the solicitation, while the agency prepared to implement corrective action following a protest challenging the award of that contract. It asserts that Res-Care should be excluded from the reopened competition.
We deny the protest.
