Friendship Dental Laboratories, Inc., of Rosedale, Maryland, requests that our Office recommend the reimbursement of Friendship's costs of filing and pursuing its protest challenging the award of a contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs to Green Dental Laboratories, Inc., of Heber Springs, Arkansas, under request for proposals (RFP) No. VA-256-10-RP-0164, for the fabrication and repair of fixed and removable dental prosthesis. Friendship also requests that we recommend the reimbursement of its costs associated with its subsequent protest challenging the award of a sole-source purchase order No. VA598-C-15277 to Green for similar services.
We grant the protester's request regarding the cost of filing and pursuing its protest challenging the award of the contract under the RFP, but deny the protester's request for costs regarding its protest against the award of the sole-source purchase order.
