Aldevra, of Portage, Michigan, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) concern, protests the terms of solicitation Nos. 630-12-3-6429-0566, 521-12-2-237-0073, VA244-12-Q-0525, and VA260-12-Q-0771, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for miscellaneous kitchen equipment for VA Medical Centers in, respectively, the Bronx, New York, Birmingham, Alabama, Coatesville, Pennsylvania, and Puget Sound, Washington. The protester asserts that the agency improperly failed to comply with the requirements of the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006, 38 U.S.C. §§ 8127-8128 (2006) (the VA Act), and its implementing regulations to determine whether these procurements should be set aside for SDVOSB (or veteran-owned small business (VOSB)) concerns.
We sustain the protests.
