- Full Report:
Hamilton Pacific Chamberlain, LLC (HPC) of Waldorf, Maryland, protests the award of a contract to Utility Systems Solutions, Inc. (US2), of Dallas, Texas, under Invitation for Bids (IFB) No. VA-245-14-B-0046, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) set-aside for steam trap replacement and installation of a new steam trap monitoring system at the VA Medical Center, Baltimore, Maryland. HPC contends that US2's bid was nonresponsive because US2 provided only a copy of its required bid guarantee with the bid.
We sustain the protest.
