Edmond Computer Company and Edmond Scientific Company protest the terms of request for quotations (RFQ) No. 701-10-RQ-0104, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to vendors holding General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contracts under Group 70, Information Technology Equipment, Software and Services. Edmond Computer, a firm that is both a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) and an FSS holder, and Edmond Scientific, a firm that is both a veteran-owned small business (VOSB) and an FSS holder, each allege that the competition should be limited to small business participation and conducted outside of the FSS program.
We deny the protests.
