- Full Report:
American Toner & Ink, of Spring Lake, Minnesota; KPaul Properties, LLC, of Indianapolis, Indiana; Dolphin Blue, Inc., of Dallas, Texas; and Capital Shredder Corp., of Rockville, Maryland, protest the terms of request for proposals (RFP) No. GSQ02-14-R-SA0001, which was issued by the General Services Administration (GSA) for a full range of office supply items that will be available for order by participating federal agencies. The protesters, which are all small businesses, argue that the solicitation consolidates numerous existing contracts for office supply items into a smaller pool of multiple-award contracts, and that the agency failed to comply with a statutory requirement to consider the consolidation's potential economic effect on small businesses.
We deny the protests.
